How To: Easter Hot Chocolate

Thursday, 4 April 2013
Warning: The calories!
Oh wow, the calorific goodness!

So here's my first "How To" for all the sweet toothed who want to do a little
more with their Easter goodies, than just eat them!

For this high-calorie, high-sugar deliciousness, you will need:
A saucepan
A mug of your choice
Milk of your choice (I used semi-skimmed)
A Tribute from District Easter
(I forgot to include it in the pictures, but you'll also need a spoon!)

Step One:
Measure your milk out using your mug; fill up to the desired amount that
you'd like to drink. Remember to leave room at the top as the chocolate
will add more volume to the drink.

Step Two:
Holding the saucepan over the sink, empty the contents of the mug into
the saucepan. And ignore the cheeky chick having a nose.

Step Three:
Over a medium heat, stir the milk every so often to prevent a skin from forming.
Heat until it's just too warm to put your finger in, or for about 5-10mins.
Baring in mind that it should be warm, but not hot, to taste.

Step Four:
Say goodbye your bunny because it's time to break him up into
pieces and add him to the warm milk!

Step Five:
Once you've stirred in all your chocolate you should have something that looks like this.
Obviously, the more chocolate you put in, the darker the drink will look.
Note: Make sure you stir continuously whilst you're adding the chocolate or it will stick 
to the bottom of the pan and burn.

Step Six:
Pour your chocolate and milk mix into your mug and voila!
You're all done! :)

Note: If I were you, I'd leave your hot chocolate to cool for a sec whilst you wash out the
pan because a) Dried, crusted milk isn't fun to scrub off and b) Your drink is hot, and nobody
likes to scald their tongue!

If you want, you're more than welcome to stop here, or you can move on
to the optional step: toppings!
I added about two-dozen mini marshmallows, but whatever you do at this point is
entirely up to you and your preferences!

So that's it.
An extremely detailed How To: Easter Hot Chocolate!
Let me know how it goes if you make this!
