Guest Recipe: Alex English's Hot Boozy Chocolate

I love our guest recipes. I never ever know what guest recipes we're going to get! It's always a complete surprise! And the lovely Alex from The Princess and the Recipe has made the yummiest hot chocolate cocktail ever. And as you probably already know, there's mot a better combination than chocolate and booze.

Hot Boozy Chocolate

The leaves are falling and the nights are drawing in and that can only mean one thing - Hot Boozy Chocolate. This recipe makes plenty for four people.

You'll need:
  • 1 cup double cream (you could substitute milk, but now is not the time to be virtuous)
  • 1 cup amaretto
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 100g posh dark chocolate, broken into pieces (I like Divine 70% dark chocolate with raspberries, or something from Paul A Young)
Make it!
  • Pour the milk or cream and amaretto into a saucepan with the cinnamon and bring it up to a gentle simmer.
  • Take the milk off the heat and let the flavours infuse for 10 minutes or so.
  • Scoop the cinnamon stick from the cream and discard it. Put the cream back on the heat and add the sugar. Stir it around a bit until it's all dissolved.
  • Break up the chocolate into a bowl. Pour over the creamy mixture and stir until the chocolate has melted.
  • Pour into martini glasses.
  • If you're feeling REALLY slutty you could add some mini marshmallows to the top. Or do as I do and drink the whole lot yourself!
Yummy!

  2. Tried this last night but with rum instead of amaretto. Didn't need the extra sugar and it was DELICIOUS....!
