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
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.
1 cinnamon stick
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.
