Best Hot Chocolate


Step 1

Heat the milk you are using.


Step 2

Pour a couple of tablespoons into the cocoa powder and mix to create a paste. Then place the cashew milk and chopped chocolate in a saucepan with the sugar and salt, and heat over low heat until the chocolate has melted, whisking all the time.


Step 3

Add the cocoa paste to the mixture and whisk to combine until smooth.


Step 4

Taste to see whether you need to add a little more salt for an extra salty kick. Remove from the heat, pass it through a sieve, then pour into two cups and serve immediately.
With whipped cream.
