are the days of bland, watery hot chocolate; this is
the way forward. We looked to the sultry cafés
of Paris for inspiration. Our hot chocolate has the
naughty, velvety indulgence of melted chocolate.
Oo la la.

1. Heat your milk in a saucepan (about
200ml, or a mugful, per serving)
2. Add approximately 2 tablespoons of hot chocolate beans
3. Whisk thoroughly.
This is where the fun starts.
If you like your hot chocolate thick, rich and strong,
add more chocolate per serving - serve in a demitasse, and
enjoy like an espresso. A deep, dark hit of chocolate. ( You
should try this with a Skelligs Coffee Stirring Stix on the
side - pure Mocha delight!)
Or make sure the kids are out, add more milk, put your feet
up and enjoy latte style. A long, slow satisfying indulgence
to take your time over.
Use our plain hot chocolates to experiment with your own additions
and infusions. May I suggest a little nutmeg in the milk hot
chocolate, or perhaps a hint of orange zest in the dark? Play
Too hot outside? Chill out. Put your cooled hot chocolate
in the fridge. Leave to chill completely and then whisk to
make the sexiest milk shake you will ever experience.
Cocktail hour. Chill your hot chocolate as above, throw in
a shot or two of Baileys and serve, over ice in a martini
glass for the ultimate in Irish cocktails.
