Hot Chocolate with candy cane mixed in. To be honest sounded better than it tasted. Loved the smell, brings about memories of Christmas. After a read of the ingredients I found the reason why I didn’t like the taste, milk powder. According to the packet instructions you just have to add hot water, I don’t like to add just hot water. Personally think that hot chocolate made from just water tastes watery and not too nice, also don’t like the taste of milk powder so I thought that I would mask the taste of the milk powder with real milk. Nope….didn’t work.
Overall not a great success (loved the packet graphic!), oh well.
I had a couple of packets of this hot chocolate, my WH (wonderful husband) made one a couple of winters ago but didn’t read the instructions, which I will point of now are in Italian. So though it tasted great it wasn’t any different from the hot chocolate mixture I buy at the store. This time I decided to try to figure of the instructions (how hard could it be?). Pretty hard. I could only figure out one instruction and that was the amount of milk that was needed 125 and I guessed it was ml.
So I poured the milk into the pan and when it was starting to warm up added the contents of the packets and gave it a good whisk. I left the pan for a few seconds to get something for my WH and when I returned, oh yum! The mixture had become all thick and smelled wonderful. I poured it into a soup cup and this is what I needed up with.
Thick, rich and oh so yummy. Had to be eaten with a spoon and I was so said when I had eaten it all. Yummy, yummy, yummy.
Can’t wait to see if my sister-in-law goes overseas again and brings me back some more hot chocolate.
