A Real Hot Chocolate

This is the ultimate winter comfort hot chocolate. It has real chocolate melted into it so you know its going to be delicious. It is great for those winter days when its hard to warm up or as an after dinner treat. Note it is quite rich, just the way I like it!

Hot chocolate


  • 400ml milk, I use trim
  • 3 x Whittakers Dark 50% Chocolate Sante Bars (they come in packs of 3 – 75g all up)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milo or drinking chocolate
  • 6 marshmallows

I use my aerolatte milk frother (see photo below) or alternatively use a clean coffee plunger.


Place milk in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add two chopped sante bars, vanilla extract and milo to the saucepan. Stir continuously with a whisk until chocolate is melted through. Once milk is hot to touch froth with your aerolatte and pour into two warmed glasses (if cold your hot chocolate gets cold very quickly). Top with marshmallows and grated chocolate from the third sante bar (Just eat the leftovers 🙂 ). Enjoy!
