Après-Ski Holiday Hot Chocolate With Brandy And Lashings Of Cream

Tis the season for hot chocolate fa ra a la la , la la la la ( sung to a Christmas tune) I know for me as winter creeps in I look to having a nice warm drink when I come in from the cold. Unfortunately I cannot lug my Tassimo 20 to the staff room so I can have a lovely hot chocolate with marshmallow, whipped cream and sprinkles when I come off the cold, cold playground.

Sometimes when you do hot chocolate in the saucepan or microwaves I find its hard to judge the milk to powder ratio and I am left with a drink that look like dish water. But now I have my beloved Tassimo I can have hot chocolate coming out of my ears ( remembers to put a can of whipped cream on my shopping list)

When the Tassimo makes a hot chocolate it really is that of the quality you get when you go out and pay anything from £1.50 upwards depending on what toppings you have etc.  Of an evening I yearn for an adult hot chocolate so the other day I raided my husbands Brandy *The good stuff*

I created an Apres Ski Hot Chocolate I don't ski , I never have but from when I am standing more likely sitting  the Apres bit looks far more entertaining !


Good Brandy

You could add a squeeze of half an orange.

Tea spoon Brown sugar.

Cadburys hot chocolate for Tassimo.

Whipped cream in a can is easiest.


Sprinkles and sweet little things.

First put a measure of Brandy in your heat resistance tall glass.

Add a teaspoon of Brown sugar.

Put the Tassimo Cadburys disc into your Tassimo.

Then put the milk disc in.

Watch your hot chocolaty goodness come to life.

You can either put the marshmallows straight in then cover with whipped cream and sprinkles!

Or the other way around , you of course don't have to use a Tassimo but when it does all the hard work for you , why wouldn't you !

Then all that is left is for you is to dive into the indulgent creamy foam. 

The one treat that can aid you with that is a chocolate covered spoon sprinkled with while chocolate drops.

Disclosure I was sent a number or items to take part in this . All thoughts words options and recipe are my own.
