Food & Wine Xmas Shoot 2012_16
This hot chocolate recipe not only produces a wonderfully thick and frothy drink but I add orange zest to add something a little Christmassy to it.  You can also make this with milk chocolate if you have a sweet tooth.  Serve it with some chocolate truffles and it will get you instantly in the Christmas spirit.  
 
Serves 2
150g dark chocolate
450ml of milk
200ml of cream
Zest of one orange
1 tablespoon of caster sugar
 
Add the milk, cream and orange zest to a saucepan and place over a medium heat.
Bring to just before the boil and then take off the heat.
Add the chocolate and sugar and mix through until the sugar has dissolved.
Strain through a sieve to catch the zest and then pour into glasses and enjoy!
