How to make the perfect Costa style hot chocolate at home.
I’m going to be re creating my favourite hot chocolate that is Crème brûlée but it’s so simple to change the flavour and create your favourite at home too.
The things you’ll need.
- Your choice of flavoured syrup I’m using Crème brûlée
- Your favourite hot chocolate, try to use one that’s readymade to heat up as it’s the most like the coffee shop style, I’m using the GU salted caramel flavour this is perfect for the more luxurious style.
- Whipped cream
- Marshmallows mini ones work best as they melt quicker.
You can add a choice of toppings; here are just a few I like to use.
- Coco powder
- Flavoured sauce
- Chocolate shavings
- Chocolate sticks
- Popping candy
To buy any flavour syrup I found this website to be the cheapest (700ml – £5.49) nextdaycoffee here you can get the crème brûlée one I’m using plus much more like black forest this is another one I love along with caramel, hazelnut and orange.
Another flavour you can use and is much easier to get your hands on and slightly more grown up is a baileys hot chocolate I love this in winter it’s a real treat and really warms you up. You can use any brand even the cheap stuff works just as well.
