Ingredients

You will need

  • 4 empty 47g fromage frais pots , washed and dried
  • 4 muffin cases
  • cellophane and twine or string , for wrapping
  • 4 mugs
  • gift tags and pen, for labelling

Method

  • STEP 1

    Very lightly grease the fromage frais pots with oil and set aside until needed.

  • STEP 2

    Melt the milk chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of just-simmering water, stirring occasionally, then divide between the prepared pots. Place in the fridge or a cold place for around 30 mins or until set.

  • STEP 3

    Once the milk chocolate layer is firm, melt the dark chocolate in a bowl as before, then pour it over the milk chocolate. Leave the pots to set for 15 mins, then sprinkle a pinch of flaky sea salt onto each.

  • STEP 4

    Cut a hole in the bottom of each paper cake case and push a cinnamon stick through. Push the end of the stick into the middle of each pot so that the paper case is upside down – it will help to hold the cinnamon stick in place while it sets.

  • STEP 5

    Leave to set overnight, then turn out and discard the pot and paper case. Wrap each in cellophane tied with twine. Tie each stick to a mug, or simply place inside the mug, and write a tag to read ‘Just add hot milk’.
