Ingredients

  • 350g milk
  • 50g cream
  • 5g cocoa powder
  • 100g LINDT EXCELLENCE Mint Intense
  • 7g crème de menthe liqueur (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan bring the milk and the cream to the boil. Remove from the heat and add in the cocoa powder – stirring until dissolved. Then add the broken pieces of the LINDT EXCELLENCE Mint Intense chocolate. Stir well until all is dissolved. Place back on a low heat and warm slightly until a nice smooth chocolate mixture is achieved. Then add the crème de menthe liqueur (this is optional).
  2. Serve in Le Creuset Espresso Mugs with whipped cream and shavings of LINDT chocolate.

LINDT MASTER CHOCOLATIER’S TIP

Warm the mugs first by filling with hot water and allowing them to stand for 1 minute, then empty out and top up with your hot chocolate. This way, your hot chocolate keeps warmer for longer while you take your time to enjoy it.
