Off The Cuff Hot Chocolate

The first cold day of autumn had arrived and the girls and I were harvesting our four bunches of grapes and a few apples. As we came back into the house, chilled to the bone, Daisy asked for hot chocolate to drink.

A great idea except that all I had in the store cupboard was cocoa powder.

Never mind – we managed to improvise and I soon had both of them measuring and stirring. It must have been a success as Sky did an Oliver Twist and kept asking for more!

1 dessert spoon of cocoa powder

2 teaspoons of honey

1/4 pint of milk

Chocolate sprinkles (optional)

Mix the cocoa powder, honey and a couple of spoonfuls of milk together until smooth. Add the rest of the milk and heat. I used the microwave. If you make it too hot just add a bit of cold milk.  The girls then added chocolate sprinkles to their drinks
