So it’s finally the time of year when the hot chocolates make an appearance again. Don’t get me wrong, you can have them any time of the year BUT autumn/winter it’s a necessity to have a hot chocolate in hand!
That being said, I’m not actually the biggest fan of your traditional Cadbury’s hot chocolate BUT I tried Costa’s white hot chocolate last year and that changed the game! I’m now converted to white hot chocolates for the foreseeable future.
So when I saw online that people were making pumpkin spice, white hot chocolates – you know I had to jump on the bandwagon! I actually made mine a little different to the ones I read about online, instead of using pumpkin purée, I used pumpkin spice and boy, did it taste good!
So if you’d like to get baking this not chocolate yourself, the recipes below:
Ingredients You Need For Hot Chocolate:
- 1182ml Of Milk

How To Make Whipping Cream:

- Place a dollop of your finished whipped cream on top of the hot chocolate and add a few marshmallows.
