There is a threat of snow tomorrow for here in Milton Keynes and walking to collect Top Ender from her School Disco this evening there was a definite nip in the air. The promise of a mug of The Best Hot Chocolate In The World when we got back had Top Ender and Big Boy hurrying home.
The secret to the best Hot Chocolate is the toppings. I used ordinary hot chocolate powder (although I do love making it with proper chocolate but that is a post for another day) made up with milk in the microwave. I then add Whipped Cream, Marshmallows, Chocolate Sprinkles, and a Rice Paper Flower. Everything melts together, the cream gets frothy at the edges and the marshmallows start to plump up and turn into a gooey sticky treat.
Right now Top Ender and Big Boy are finishing off their drinks before they go to brush their teeth and head off to bed... I think I might sit here with the Christmas lights on and drink some more Hot Chocolate.
