FYI If it's warmer in your neighbourhood you can still enjoy this recipe as an iced drink by simply creating a smooth paste from your chocolate powder mix and adding chilled milk and ice cubes - yum!.
For the mix
2 Tbs Horlicks (or any malted milk)
2 Tbs Cornflour (this adds the best texture to the mix!!)
3 Tbs Icing Sugar (Powdered Sugar)
4 Tbs Cocoa (I use Dutch Cocoa)
100g Chocolate (70% cocoa solids) finely grated
1 Pinch sea salt
1 Pinch cinnamon
Place in a bowl and whisk to combine the dry mix. Then place in a jar.
To make your hot chocolate
Place 1 litre of milk in a saucepan and heat till almost boiling point.
Add 10 heaped tablespoons of the mix and whisk to combine.
Allow the mix to bubble, heat and thicken slightly (this will take a few minutes).
Serve and enjoy!
(*you could also add a very small pinch of chilli powder for a kick or some orange zest once you have made your mugs of hot chocolate, simply stir through the hot mix and serve immediately).
