Ingredients

  • 200g bar plain chocolate , broken into chunks
  • 600ml milk
  • 150ml pot single or double cream
  • sugar , to taste
  • 6 peppermint candy canes, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the chocolate in a pan with the milk. Gently heat, stirring until all the chocolate has melted. Continue heating until the milk is steaming, then remove from the heat and stir in the cream.

  • STEP 2

    Divide the hot chocolate between 6 mugs, add sugar to taste and hang a candy cane on the edge of each. Pass the mugs round and let everyone stir their hot chocolate with their candy cane – letting as much of the sweet peppermint dissolve as they fancy.
