Adults Only Hot Chocolate

LifeStyleWebTV's picture
This sinful version of a childhood favourite is made with real melted dark chocolate, and gets a grown up twist when spiked with liqueur. It's perfect for sipping with your sweetie on a cold winter's evening, but is guaranteed to chase away the blues at anytime of year. Sipping solo? Just half the recipe. To sneak in some health benefits, use high quality dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa mass for antioxidant value. To cut calories, use 1% or skim milk, though whole milk provides the richest flavour.

  Whipped cream 20 Gram
  Cinnamon stick 1 (Optional)
