Equipment

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar ($0.06)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder ($0.40)
  • 1 cup heavy cream ($0.99)
  • 2 cups whole milk ($0.38)
  • 5 whole Cadbury creme eggs ($1.95)
  • whipped cream *for garnish

Instructions

  • Over medium-low heat, in a medium-sized saucepan whisk together the sugar and cocoa powder.
  • Slowly whisk in milk and heavy cream. Continue to whisk mixture until sugar and cocoa have dissolved.
  • Chop your Cadbury creme eggs into quarters and then place them into the pot.
  • Whisk until chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Remove cocoa from heat. Pour cocoa into two mugs. Garnish with whipped cream and serve.

Notes

Recipe Tips

  • If at any point you feel like the cocoa is just too rich or sweet you can easily tone it down by adding in a little more milk.
  • Depending on the side of your drinking mugs and how full you fill them you may be able to get 3 or even 4 glasses filled from this one recipe.
  • Do not chop the Creme eggs too early in preparation as the creme will start falling out of the shells and cause a mess on your cutting boards or wherever you have them placed until needed.
  • You can use any milk that you would prefer for this hot chocolate recipe. I tend to prefer whole milk or 2% as that is what I have on hand but feel free to use unsweetened almond milk or even coffee creamer if preferred.
  • You do not want your milk mixture to boil. You want to scald it, meaning that there are just a few bubbles around the edges of the pan. You also want it warm enough that everything has melted correctly and that there are no lumps of chocolate in the liquid.
