Jamie’s Epic Hot Chocolate for one

hot chocolate

Jamie Oliver made this Epic Hot chocolate as part of his Christmas Special on TV. I wanted to try the recipe which was originally made for 8 to 10 people. You can keep the ingredients in a large jar, but I would rather make it as I need it.

This recipe is epic because it contains real chocolate. I recommend using Lindt 70% chocolate, because 1 square equals 10 grams. My version doesn’t contain Horlicks because it’s hard to find in Australia. If you do have it, add 1/2 teaspoon to the mixture.

I love cuddling on the couch with a great video and a cup of steaming hot chocolate. Here’s to an epic hot chocolate recipe for one.

  1. I remember as a teenager we always had Horlicks in the pantry. My mother would give it to us the night before we had exams as she said it would help us sleep well! I haven’t seen horlicks for a very long time. I love making hot chocolate from real chocolate – there’s nothing better! xx
