Hot Chocolate

Everyone enjoys a good hot chocolate in the colder months, but may find it hard to get one whilst out and about, and lets face it, real chocolate tastes that much better than the powdered stuff.

For 3 small mugs (150ml ish each - good luck trying to eat more!) - you will need:

3/4 - 1 cup of grated dark cooking chocolate, grated
4 tablespoons of raw sugar or sweetner quivalent (stevia for example) add more or less depending on your sweet tooth.
2+ cups of soy milk or vegan alternative (rice would go nicely, but I used Soy Milky Lite)

Place about half a cup of the milk in a pot over a high heat, once it starts warming up add half the chocolate and all of the sugar, mix until melted.
Add the rest of the chocolate, mix until melted and combine with the remaining milk.
At this point it's up to you, if you would prefer more milk and less of a chocolatey flavour, add more milk.

Done! Easy!

Place in mugs (make sure you serve it very hot!) and add toppings of your choice. In the picture I've just added some extra grated chocolate, but some whipped soy or coconut cream or vegan marshmallows would also go extremely well.
