If you're heading out for a walk this weekend, make sure you take a flask of something hot and yummy. We'll be making this delicious hot chocolate recipe from River Cottage chef, Gillon Meller. Best cooked on an open fire.
Real hot chocolate
Serves 6-8 1ltr whole milk 200g 75% good quality chocolate 2-3 tbsp sugar
1. Pour the milk into a suitable pan and set it over the embers to warm. Break the chocolate into small pieces and add it along with the sugar. Allow the hot chocolate to come just to the simmer. The chocolate will take time to dissolve properly so keep stirring. 2. Remove the hot chocolate from the heat and allow to sit for 5 mins before giving it a final stir and serving.
