Winter Warmers

Here are a couple of hot drink recipes. When the weather is miserable, one of my favourite things to do is to make a delicious molten dessert sort of drink to either snuggle under the covers with, or to fuel my essay writing. Both recipes serve 2.

Perfect Hot Chocolate

500ml milk

100g chocolate (use a combination of milk and dark chocolate, quantities of your preference)

A pinch of salt

Syrup or liqueur to taste (coffee syrups and orange or hazelnut liqueurs work best)

Boil milk in a small saucepan on a medium heat. Add the chocolate and stir well until melted. Add the pinch of salt and your flavourings of choice.

Add whipped cream to serve

Mulled Cider

1l cider

1 cinnamon stick

3 cloves

An orange, sliced

Bring all ingredients to a boil in a saucepan. After being brought to a boil, reduce heat and allow to simmer for half an hour. Strain and serve.
