Creamy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Creamy hot chocolate



Yield 1 cup

A creamy and incredibly satisfying hot chocolate.



  1. In a small saucepan on the stove, heat the milk on medium until it starts to bubble.
  2. Turn the heat down slightly and add the cacao, rice malt syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
  3. Stir well, ensuring you break up any clumps of cacao (right about now it should start to smell incredible!).
  4. Once it’s fully combined, pour into your favourite mug and enjoy every single sip in the cosiest spot you can find.


For an even creamier consistency, I sometimes I use an electric milk frothing jug. I found one in a local store for under $30. If you have one of these on hand, simply add the cacao, rice malt syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and salt into a mug. Add hot water to cover and stir well into a thick chocolate paste. Ensure there are no lumps before adding the frothed milk. I find that I use about half as much milk this way and the texture is amazing. Gently mix the frothed milk and the chocolate paste together and enjoy!
