Friday Food Files

My daughter loves hot chocolate. She usually has it for breakfast, especially on the cold mornings we've been having. Our hot chocolate has to be made with milk - I've never been a fan of water based hot chocolate.

Our stand-by easy version is to heat up our milk and add a heaping tea-spoon of Suchard Express (imported from Switzerland, but not at that price!) and mix for a nice frothy hot chocolate.

If you don't have Suchard Express, try the following recipe for one cup:

  • 1 cup of hot frothy milk
  • 1 teaspoon of bakers cocoa (the best quality you can afford)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1 dash of vanilla extract
  • sprinkle with salt
Sometimes we'll add mini marshmallows as an afternoon treat, but usually a hot-chocolate is just a simple beverage that warms the soul on a cold winters day.


  1. That sounds and look delicious!

  2. Great shot! I'm trying to figure out how to take foodie pics with darker backgrounds currently. Tough :(

  3. Beautiful pictures! I never realized hot chocolate was so simple. Totally going to try!

  4. Sounds delish but I don't see the proccess. Would you mind to give it to me?? Thals in advance

    1. There is no process. You just add above ingredients to the warm milk, stir and then sprinkle with salt.
