Real hot chocolate

I was asked ages ago how i make my hot chocolate and kept meaning to do this post but have only just gotton round to it.
I like any kind of hot chocolate but the ones you see in the photos i've posted are the real thing rather then instant. I only make them this way when i'm treating myself otherwise i just use instant(Cadburys or Aero. yum) for speed and ease.

Heres how i make it, this is enough for 2 good servings
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder- i usually use Cadbury's
  • 150ml single cream
  • 500ml milk, plus 2 tablespoons seperate
  • mini marshmallows-i get mine from Asda
Firstly mix the cocoa powder with the 2 tablespoons of milk to form a paste. Over a lo
w heat bring the cream to just below boiling point. Take the cream from the heat, add the milk and then bring it all to the boil, whisking every now and then. Now add the cocoa paste and whisk to combine it all together.
Divide the hot chocolate between two cups and add marshmallows on top(as many as you like!) I love how the marshmallows go all melty and gooey.
