Parisan Decadent Hot Chocolate


Snuggle up by the fire with a cup of decadent homemade hot chocolate, just like you would find in cafe Angelina in Paris. The flavour is rich and intense topped with a sprinkle of nutmeg for some Christmas flavour, just perfect with biscotti.


  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons icing sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 250g chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • Cinnamon stick/ grated nutmeg

Place a sauce pan over medium heat, whisk together the milk, cream, cinnamon stick, sugar and espresso powder. Let it simmer until small bubbles appear around the edges, but make sure it does not boil. Remove from heat and stir in the chopped chocolate. You may need to place back on low heat just to make sure all the chocolate melts. Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg and serve with biscotti.
