Brew a Perfect Cup

Spoon 3 heaped teaspoons (20g) into a mug or cup, maybe a couple more if you are feeling decadent. Gently heat approximately 200ml of milk and pour onto the chocolate stirring thoroughly. For a moment of true indulgence, top with whipped cream, marshmallows and a generous sprinkle of hot chocolate powder.

My favourite hot chocolate, I just keep coming back to it as no other cocoa delivers the same richness. I find it also goes lovely and thick when made with non-dairy milk (soya, almond etc).
To those saying this is gritty or bland -- this hot chocolate needs quite a stir into very hot milk before it dissolves completely, the grit is whole grains of sugar and the cocoa is so rich it will not dissolve any other way. You have to work to get the quality, and this is certainly better than any instant hot chocolate. I recommend using an electric hand milk-frother for best results -- beautifully creamy and sumptuous.

Made this with skimmed milk but it still tasted creamy, rich and delicious. Easily as good as anything from any of the well-known coffee shops. Not sure how other reviewers found it gritty, I found it smooth. Maybe it's the way people mix it? Maybe they didn't heat the milk enough so that the sugar dissolved?

I bought a selection box as a treat for Christmas, no one in our family likes them. There is no flavour,they are all too sweet, gritty, and leave a horrible aftertaste. Gone in the bin. sad because I used to really like whittards Hot choc, but then it was actually chocolate. I have to go back to Charbonnel et Walker. Sadly I could give no stars.

Best hot chocolate I have ever had. I love nothing more than sitting on sofa in the winter with a hot chocolate and this one is just perfect. Some people just don't know how to make it properly.

I am sorry some if these reviews say that the supermarkets hot chocolates are better value, I have to disagree, I have been buying this for at least 10 years and when living in Canada for 5 years shipped it over, you can only make this with milk, and whisk for a minute at least otherwise it will be gritty. I don't drink tea or coffee so this is my luxury, but everyone is entitled to there own opinion. But for those who enjoy also buy when on offer and in bulk works out at approx £3.50 per carton.
Enjoy!!!!
