How to make hot chocolate
I simply had to try this drink, every time I’ve seen a similar drink on pinterest, google images or simply out and about, my mouth was drooling!! So, I had a bash and I have to say, it was one of the easiest recipes so far really, well apart from the Bailey’s Hot Chocolate I made not so long ago.
So, if you want to have a go yourself, prepare for a truly sweet drink and get yourself down to Tesco/Aldi/Asda for the following bits and pieces that you will need for this unicorn hot chocolate drink.
Ingredients for unicorn drink
Milk – semi skimmed just under 1 pint
White Chocolate – 120grams
Pink Food Colouring (I used red because I could not find pink)
Vanilla Flavouring – I tablespoon
Granulated Sugar – 1 tablespoon
Hundreds and Thousands – to rim the glass.

Hot Chocolate Recipe
It really is easy. Simply pour the milk, sugar, vanilla flavouring and 2 drops of the food colouring along with the chocolate cut into cubes, into a pan.
Heat up and stir gently, not boiling. This should be done until the chocolate and sugar has dissolved.
N.B. Try not to eat the rest of the chocolate that is in temptations way, because that would be totally lacking in willpower…Thank the lord, I am not that weak. Alright alright, you broke me, I had a piece or three but please don’t tell my slimming world leader because I keep disputing the scales!!! It is them not me honest!
Ok, so you should now have a nice milky mixture that is pink in colour and nice and smooth.
Pour into some really fancy hot chocolate glasses. You don’t have any?? That will never do, you need to self treat immediately at The Cheeky Cow .
Oh, I digress. You are now ready to top your hot chocolate drink. I let it cool ever so slightly. I then squirted cream on top of the drink, added some hundreds and thousands and mini marshmellows and a fancy straw with an umbrella.
And, it turned out like the picture below, and I was thrilled with both the taste and the look.
