If you’ve never had an Italian Hot Chocolate before you’re in for a treat.  It’s not like hot chocolate that you’re used to. This is thick, rich, velvety sweet decadence that you can practically stand your spoon up in.  It’s almost a chocolate fondue, but still just drinkable.


  • 115g good quality dark chocolate, finely chopped

  • 375ml cups milk

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar

  • 1 tbsp cornflour


  • 1.

    Place the chocolate and 125ml of the milk into a small saucepan. Heat on medium, stirring, until chocolate is melting.

  • 2.

    Pour in the rest of the milk, vanilla, sugar and cornflour, and stir until smooth and thick.

  • 3.

    Pour into cups and serve with biscuits for dunking.
