I spent the fist few weeks trying all my friends favourites, because I had no idea what they were. I was covered in "heat lumps" but did not care. I had arrived in heaven
Cadburys all the way for me

Although I do like the strong bitter stuff too - just not as much.

Right... I have emailed a chef mate of mine who lived in Spain (and worked as a chef) for 18 years and he gave me this recipe of the one they used to make the hot chocolate in their restaurant....


400 ml milk
250 ml sweetened condensed milk
300 g Dark chocolate broken up (he says use anything 70% and up)
250 ml double cream
1 small cinnamon stick.

Infuse the cinnamon in the milk by gently simmering for 15 mins, melt the chocolate in a baine marie and when its melted stir in the infused milk and condensed cream until smooth and emulsified and pour into glasses or cups. Whisk the cream and put a dollop on each one then you are ready to go.....


Hope it helps.

Cream eggs for the wife, she love the adverts with the little egg, taking its wrapper off and catapulting itself at the screen.

She runs into the living room if she hears its on the TV.....

It takes her about half an hour to eat one, I wish I got as much attention...............

I think they add cornflour to most makes.
¿churros con champurrado?

Creme eggs are so sickly I would bring my toenails up if I ate one.

My daughter gave me a box of candied orange peel dipped in seriously dark chocolate.

Ooooooooo.........

For the thick drinking chocolate to with our churros, we buy it ready made in the carton. We get the Ram brand and is usually found in the milk aisle.
YUM!!!!
