Tanya brought this decadent treat to my attention and I just had to try it.
The recipe comes from Alida and O!M!G! it is the most amazing hot chocolate I have ever had, totally worth taking the time to make it on the stove.
So without further ado…
- ½ cup cocoa
- ½ cup muscavado or treacle sugar
- 1 tablespoon Maizena (cornflour)
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup milk
- Add all ingredients to a saucepan and mix well.
- Continue to stir over a low heat until the mixture thickens and is heated through.
Makes two large and very delicious mugs of hot chocolate.

Glad you enjoyed it 🙂 I’ve used it for an ice cream sauce too. And added a bit of Cointreau for a bit of an orangey flavour.
Paul added marshmallow to his last night 🙂
Mmmm, luvvit! Was also thinking it would make a divine sauce for icecream!
