1 Dec

So its December guys! Like you didnt already know eh?


I spent the rest of the Afternoon watching Christmas cooking specials with the Mr.

After one particular episode of Mr Olivers fave Christmas recipes, it sent my hubby to the shop in search of a few key ingredients…..

Yes you guessed it.

Jamies Epic Hot Chocolate

Epic Hot Chocolate

This is super easy to make, all you need are the following ingredients


  • 2 tbsps of Horlicks
  • 2 tbsps Cornflour
  • 3 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Good quality cocoa powder
  • 100g Dark chocolate finely grated
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt

Simply mix of the ingredients into a bowl.

Epic Mix

i put mine into a Kilner Jar and use as required.

The recipe suggests 10 tbsp per 2 pints.

We used 5/6 tbsp per pint of hot milk which made 3 cups, so I would say 2 tbsp per cup

This is not my recipe, its one from the Jamie Oliver website.

If you are wanting a really sweet Hot chocolate then I wouldn’t say this is that, its more a malty drink. Mine didn’t look as thick as Jamie’s was, but I would Imagine its a case of altering the recipe to your own taste.
