Hot chocolate 

Before we start you will need: 34% milk chocolate flakes, your choice of milk (cows, oat, almond, soya or coconut), thyme and pink pepper - and a saucepan, hot chocolate maker or chocolate shaker.  

On the hob or in the hot chocolate maker 

Heat 200ml of your preferred milk on the hob, taking care not to boil it as this destroys nutrients and affects the taste. Or if you are using the hot chocolate maker then add your preferred milk to it – we recommend 200ml for one cup. 

Add around 8 teaspoons of 34% milk chocolate flakes. 

When the hot chocolate maker is finished or the flakes are dissolved on the hob, add 1 tsp of pink pepper, lightly crushed to release flavour and add 1 sprig of thyme. 

Stir again and let it steep for 1 minute before you pour your hot chocolate through a strainer.

In the Shaker 

Warm 200ml of your preferred milk in the Shaker (lid off) in the microwave. 

Add around 8 teaspoons of 34% milk chocolate flakes. 

Make sure the lid is pressed in, and then secure fully to the cup. 

Shake for 10 seconds.

Add 1 tsp of pink pepper, lightly crushed to release flavour and add 1 sprig of thyme and let it steep for about 1 minute

Then you’re ready to enjoy your smooth, frothy hot chocolate.

Cold chocolate milk - in the Chocolate Shaker 

Before we start you will need: 34% milk chocolate flakes, your choice of milk (cows, oat, almond, soya or coconut), thyme, pink pepper and a chocolate shaker (or you can use a saucepan or hot chocolate maker). 

Start with a small hot chocolate; add milk up to level 2 (about 100ml), then add 5 teaspoons of 34% milk chocolate flakes. 

Then add 1 tsp of pink pepper, lightly crushed to release flavour and add 1 sprig of thyme.

Put the shaker in the microwave (without the lid) for half a minute (or heat up milk on the hob and add it to the flakes). 

Make sure the lid is pressed in and then secure fully to the cup. 

Shake for 10 seconds or until all the flakes are dissolved and then top up with cold milk. 

To make an iced chocolate milk, add a couple of ice cubes to it.

Give it another quick shake and then strain it through a seive into a glass and you have an ice-cold chocolate milk.
