Together with two friends I visited the Harry Potter Studios in Leavsden. It was SO good and somehow surreal – like a dream come true! Of course, I bought a lot of lovely stuff in the gift shop… 😉
One of things I bought was the cute little cauldron this fabulous Hot Chocolate is served in. Oh yeah – and can you spot what’s lying next to it? My very own time-turner! Shame it doesn’t actually work, but I guess you can’t expect that for this price. 😉
All the best,
Real London Hot Chocolate
Preparation time: about 5 min
Yield: two mugs of hot chocolate
- 3.5 dl milk
- 80g dark chocolate
- 0.75 dl cream
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- Chop the chocolate coarsely and grate 2 tablespoons for the decoration (set aside).
- Put the chopped chocolate and the milk into a saucepan and heat until it is hot but not boiling.
- In the meantime, whip the cream together with the sugar, until soft peaks form.
- Whisk the milk until all chocolate has dissolved. Pour the chocolate milk into two cups. Pipe the whipped cream on top and decorate with the grated chocolate. Serve immediately!
