Even though the Toy Show comes around every year, without fail we always look forward to the chaos of the bike parade, that one child who always inadvertently entertains the whole country and the malfunctioning toys and technology!
And one thing that will make it that much more Christmassy and fun? This gorgeous Bailey's hot chocolate recipe!
1tbsp corn starch
2 ½tbsp cocoa
100g chopped dark chocolate
Pour 45ml of milk into a small bowl and slowly add the cornstarch to it, whisking as you go.
In a separate bowl, mix the cocoa and sugar together.
Put a saucepan over a medium-low heat and add in the rest of the milk until it starts to boil.
Slowly whisk in the cocoa and sugar mixture until it’s smooth and then add in chopped dark chocolate.
Next, pour in your Baileys and continue to stir until the mixture begins to thicken
In a small to medium pot heat 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon milk until boiling, reduce heat to low, while whisking add milk mixture, then slowly add cocoa, whisking continually until smooth, and add 90g of the chopped chocolate and baileys.
Keep it heated on low for 2-3 minutes before pouring it into a glass or cup and serve topped with whipped cream and the shavings of the remaining dark chocolate and enjoy!
