Hot Chocolate at Home
Are you looking for a cosy and delicious way to warm up at home? Nothing beats a rich and creamy cup of homemade hot chocolate on a chilly day. Here are some of the best hot chocolate recipes to try out in the comfort of your own home:
Classic Hot Chocolate
In a saucepan, heat up milk (or your preferred non-dairy alternative) until just simmering. Add in your preferred amount of Rio Nuevo Chocolate's 60% or 70% chocolate, broken into small pieces, and whisk until melted and smooth. Pour into a mug and enjoy!
Spiced Hot Chocolate
Add a pinch of cinnamon and a dash of cayenne pepper to your classic hot chocolate recipe for a warming and flavourful twist.
Mint Hot Chocolate
Add a few drops of peppermint extract to your classic hot chocolate recipe for a refreshing and festive flavour.
Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate
Whisk a spoonful of smooth peanut butter into your classic hot chocolate recipe for a rich and indulgent treat.
Orange Hot Chocolate
Add a splash of orange juice and a few strips of orange zest to your classic hot chocolate recipe for a citrusy and fragrant twist.
These hot chocolate recipes are easy to make and can be customised to your liking. For the best results, we recommend using high-quality chocolate like Rio Nuevo Chocolate's 60% or 70% chocolate, which will add depth and richness to your hot chocolate.
