Winter Warmers


There's nothing better at this time of year than sitting down in comfy pj's with your Christmas Tree lights twinkling, watching a Christmas film and drinking hot chocolate in a very festive mug!!

I have to admit that I am not that into drinking hot chocolate until Christmas time, maybe it has something to do with the fact that it may include a little bit of Baileys. This time I decided to get a little bit create and not just use chocolate powder from a jar.

The first one I made in the cutest little milk jar was a Terry's Chocolate Orange Hot Choclate with whipped cream and a striped straw. It was extremely easy to make, I measured the milk into the jar and then poured it into a pan on a low heat to warm through (please ask an adult to help). Once it was the right temperature I put in about a quarter of the chocolate orange and stirred until it had fully melted. Leave it to cool for five minuted before pouring into the milk jar, then add the whipped cream - as much or as little as you would like and add the straw. To make it a little fancier I popped a piece of the chocolate orange on top for decoration.

My other creation was this white hot chocolate served up in a festive mug from Asda. A confession - this time I did use a very delicious chocolate powder from Whittards!! Once again I measured out the milk in my mug and poured into a pan to heat up, I then used a table spoon and added in the powder until it was the perfect chocolate consistence. The final touches to make it look super cute was whipped cream, marshmallows, a candy cane and chocolate sprinkles left over from the Terry's Chocolate Orange.

Give these a go yourselves for Christmas morning to make the perfect combination of delicious hot chocolate and opening presents.

Have a very Merry Christmas!!!
