DIY Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is one of my favourite drinks to drink all year round and I have loved it every since I was very small.  But there's nothing better than having it at Christmas time all snuggled up on the sofa so I have put a super simple recipe together on how to make orange flavoured hot chocolate and decorate them in festive orange cups.

To start you will need:

Milk
Orange flavoured chocolate
Oranges
Marshmallows or whipped cream
Straws

First you will need to heat your milk in a saucer.  You can do this on the stove or be lazy and pop it in the microwave!  Once heated (you don't want it to boil) you can add the orange flavoured chocolate and melt that in too.  Keep stirring and have little tasters along the way to check it's chocolatey enough for you!

Then you can either stop here and pour the milk into mugs, adding marshmallows or whipped cream and enjoy or for something extra Christmassy you can hollow out an orange, cut off the top and pour the milk into it.  You can then make a hole on the lid of the orange and put a straw through it.  Be careful not to burn your mouth if it's still very hot though!

And that's basically it.  So simple but so festive :)

I hope you enjoy making these and have a fab Christmas.
