Hot Chocolate & Marshmallows Spiked With Rum
4 Teaspoons Cocoa Powder
100 g/3.5 ounces Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa content)
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
500 ml/17 ounces Milk
Brown Sugar/Honey to taste
30 ml/2 Tablespoons Rum (optional)
Pour the milk into a sauce pan and bring to the boil.
Reduce the heat, add the chocolate and cinnamon. Stir constantly until the chocolate is melted. Add cocoa powder, sugar and rum. Simmer for a further minute or two before turning of the heat.
If using honey instead of sugar, add this at the end – after the cooking so it doesn’t lose all the nutrients.
Pour into mugs and top with marshmallows/whipped cream/chocolate sauce or anything you like!
