Ingredients

  • 150ml milk
  • 50ml double cream
  • ¼-½ tsp dark brown soft sugar
  • ½ orange, zested
  • pinch of ground ginger
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 clove
  • 2 drops of vanilla extract
  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped

To garnish (optional)

  • whipped cream
  • 1 mini gingerbread or speculoos biscuit, crushed

Method

  • STEP 1

    Stir the milk, cream, sugar, orange zest and spices together in a saucepan, then bring to a simmer over a low heat. Remove from the heat and pour through a sieve into a jug, discarding the clove and orange zest. Pour the warm infused milk back into the pan and stir in the vanilla and chocolate until the chocolate has melted and is smooth.

  • STEP 2

    Return the pan to a low heat to warm through, if needed, then pour into a heatproof mug. Top with whipped cream and crushed gingerbread biscuits, if you like, then serve.
