A delicious and cosy mug of homemade hot chocolate created with a rich chocolate sauce and creamy frothy milk. Finish it off with a dusting of cocoa and a sprinkling of grated dark chocolate! 


  • 1/2 Tbsp – 1 Tbsp of my homemade chocolate sauce recipe
  • 1 cup milk of choice, warmed and frothed
  • Cocoa powder, to dust
  • Dark chocolate block, grated or shaved, for topping 


  1. Add chocolate sauce to mug, using 1 tablespoon for a rich hot chocolate or half for regular strength. 
  2. Warm and froth milk on the stove top, in a pot over a medium heat and froth with a whisk until foamy. Or add milk to a milk frother that also warms the milk.
  3. Pour milk over chocolate sauce, whilst mixing with a spoon to blend it well with the milk. 
  4. Dust over desired amount of cocoa powder and grate over a little chocolate using a grater or peeler. 
  5. Serve and enjoy!
