My favourite hot chocolate is from a patisserie called Angelina in Paris. It is my yardstick for good hot chocolates and this one comes pretty close.

  • Makes 2 cups
  • Cook Time



  • 150 gm dark chocolate, chopped
  • 125 ml milk
  • 100 ml fresh cream


  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the cream to a boil.
  2. Once it comes to a boil, tip in the chocolate. Stir until it boils, and the mixture is very smooth.
  3. Pour in the milk and let boil for just a minute more before you take the pan off the flame.
  4. Pour into mugs and top with marshmallows or whipped cream to serve.
