Super Treat

Time to do something sweet for your partner. who can say no to chocolate. I love hot chocolate and iced chocolate. So I have found couple of recipes for you to try on your bestie.

Hot Chocolate

Cooking Time 5 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1L (4 cups) milk
  • 100g good-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • Marshmallows, to serve
  • Whipped cream or frothed milk


  1. Place the milk in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside for 1 minute.Keep an eye on this because milk boils over very quickly.
  2. Place 20g of the chocolate in each of four heatproof serving glasses. Pour the hot milk over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate melts and is smooth. Top with cream and marshmallows ( I like the mini marshmallows) and sprinkle with the remaining chocolate grated. Serve immediately.


  • White chocolate variation: Use 100g of good-quality white chocolate instead of the dark chocolate in this recipe.
  • The South Americans were the first people to drink chocolate and they often put chilli in the choc to increase the intensity of taste. I like it with a little chilli ( just a pinch of chilli powder)

Iced Chocolate

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 cups reduced-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons of quality chocolate topping
  • 1 large scoop reduced-fat double chocolate ice-cream
  • Whipped cream and grated dark chocolate, to serve


Pour chocolate sauce around the inside of the glass, add milk and icecream. Top with cream and grated chocolate. Serve.


You can add a dash of peppermint flavouring and garnish with a mint sprig
