Luxury Chocolate Mint Hot Chocolate


A rich and creamy, real chocolate, hot chocolate treat. Indulgent, luxurious, silkily smooth. A special treat and not an every day drink. Just right for a warming, late night Christmas Eve treat. Yes?

Recently I found some rich, dark, mint chocolate. It was delicious. I made some melt-in-the-mouth mint chocolate truffles with it and then decided to make a hot chocolate drink. Mmmmmmmm! They were sooooo good!

I don’t have any left to share with you, so I thought I’d share the hot chocolate recipe instead. It’s based on one from BBC Good Food.


  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1 cup thick Cream
  • 4 oz / 100g quality dark Mint Chocolate, high cocoa solids content



  1. Warm gently in a saucepan on a low heat, stirring continuously.
  2. When all the chocolate is melted, pour into cups.
  3. Garnish with whipped cream, grated chocolate or your favorite topping, if you wish.
  4. Or just savor the rich unadulterated flavors.
  5. Savor and enjoy.


For Children:

Use milk chocolate rather than strong dark chocolate.

Make marshmallow snowmen.
