This is my favourite hot chocolate recipe for several reasons:

  • It’s thick.
  • It’s incredibly creamy.
  • Only contains 5 simple ingredients, one being your favourite chocolate.
  • Only takes 10 – 20 minutes of your time.
  • It tastes so good, you’ll never buy store-bought hot chocolate again.

Yup. It is that good. Such a simple recipe that will create your favourite hot chocolate!

You can use any chocolate you like! Get creative and use fruit flavoured chocolate. Here, I used a dark chocolate infused with orange oil. Perfection.
