Thick, creamy, dreamy hot chocolate made with only 5 simple ingredients, one being your favourite chocolate!


  • 2 and 1/4 cups whole milk 500ml
  • 1 cup your favourite chocolate 175g
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar optional
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour/cornstarch


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the milk to the boil.
  2. Add the chocolate, vanilla extract, sugar, and cornflour, and whisk until melted and smooth.
  3. Continue whisking (making sure to get in the corners of the pan to prevent the chocolate gathering there) until the mixture reaches your desired thickness.

  4. Remove from the heat, and pour the hot chocolate into your favourite mugs. Top with marshmallows, whipped cream, or grated chocolate.
