Happy Wednesday all! Today’s recipe is Oreo Hot Chocolate – made with 85% dark chocolate this is not a regular hot chocolate – it’s a pure delight.
It’s topped up with whipped cream and a few Oreo biscuits, oh and a chocolate bar on a side, you know, just in case. 🙈 I’m not gonna talk about health benefits and calories (duh, obviously) here but this will definitely warm you up. 😀 And it’s a real treat. I honestly, couldn’t finish the whole glass, even though I’m a true chocolate lover, that’s how intense it was. I should’ve probably made them smaller or may be divided the chocolate between three glasses. Anyway, this was by far the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tried.
All you have to do is to simply melt some good quality dark chocolate with milk, simple as that. Make sure to use chocolate with at least 75% cocoa solids, less than that it’s not really dark, as far as I know. I’m sure it’ll taste amazing with milk chocolate too though. 😋
Here’s how to make the Oreo Hot Chocolate
- 100g good quality dark chocolate (75% cocoa solids at least)
- 400ml milk
- whipping cream
- a couple of chocolate bars ( such as Twix)
- 4-5 Oreo biscuits
- Heat a pot with the milk and gently melt the chocolate, stirring all the time.
- Pour in a few cups, add some whipping cream and crushed Oreo biscuits and finish off with a chocolate bar on a side.
- Enjoy it hot!
This recipe was inspired by my recent trip to Belgium. I don’t think I’ve actually mention about that here, oops. 😆 So, yes, in a few words, we spent (my whole family) a few days in Brussels enjoying the city and some great food. I also had an amazing hot chocolate there but to be honest this one is even better, probably because it’s even more intense and chocolatey. There’s no secret to make a good hot chocolate really – simply use good quality chocolate! Or I might use a secret ingredient, who knows? 😄
I hope you guys love this recipe as much as we did. Stay tuned for more quick, easy and tasty recipes coming very soon. Meanwhile, stay warm and have some hot chocolate. 😘
