Hot chocolate with added spice

If you’re looking for a different kind of hot chocolate, try this spiced hot chocolate recipe. Follow the link for how to make it but check the ingredients below (which I’m sure you can substitute for dairy-free alternatives where applicable)


  • 400ml full cream milk
  • 100g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
  • 1 tsp light brown sugar
  • 1 heaped tsp freshly ground green cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp ginger syrup (optional)
  • double cream and grated chocolate to garnish

And for another type of chocolate drink with added spice (cinnamon in this case), try a cup of cocoa tea.
