Recipe : Hot Chocolate !

Yesterday ( The 23rd September ) It officially became Autumn in England and I'm very VERY excited ! I love Autumn because I love all the colours and the clothing and the cuddling and most importantly, I can start preparing Christmas DIYs for my blog which I'm so eager to start doing ! So to celebrate the official start of the half of the year where you can snuggle up in bed with Sherlock on and drinking endless hot chocolates. I wanted to share with you my own recipe for the best hot chocolate ever ! But as we're nearing the end of the week and getting tired I thought we might need something stronger ... so I'm adding edible glitter !!!



Step One : Pop about four teaspoons of chocolate chips into a mug and add an extra one because... chocolate tastes nice ;) Then add about 5/6 mini marshmallows in and mix it all together !



Step Two : Refrain from eating the marshmallows and chocolate chips mixture you've just made .

Step Three : Repeat Step One because I know you ignored Step Two ;)

Step Four : fill your mug about a quarter of the way up with milk

Step Five : Microwave in for thirty seconds and then stir until the chocolate in melted into the milk. Then fill the rest of the mug up with milk .



Step Six : Microwave again for two minutes. To stop the milk from boiling over your mug and ruining your mothers microwave ( sorry mum ) I found that it's best to microwave it for thirty seconds, stir, another thirty seconds, stir and then one minute and stir again !



Step Seven : You don't really need to add edible glitter at this point but I got over excited about the sparkles and did but you can see how pretty it looks :)

Step Eight : Okay, this is the cool bit, you might be confused, think I'm going mad or both but honestly just try it ! Add some chocolate ice cream on top of your hot chocolate and then sprinkle some edible gold glitter on for extra magic . As you drink it the ice cream cools down the hot chocolate on the way into your mouth just enough to make it the perfect temperature and oh my gosh it tastes so SO good !!!



Let me know if you give this a try ! I promise you'll love it and it's great for treating yourself after a rough day or when you just have a craving for chocolate :) I hope you like it !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)

lots of love, Marianne xxx

  3. I'm going to need a moment........ :') Okay just finished dusting my room, now I can proceed to commenting. This looks absolutely amazing!! I was just at the store yesterday and we were in the hot chocolate section and I was craving it so bad but I didn't really want to get any because I knew I wouldn't finish them since the packaged one's can get a little tiring after a while. BUT I must try this one out! It's like a gift sent from heaven! Thank you Marianne :') I always knew I liked you haha. *Writes an emphasis on steps two and three* And that glitter though <3
