The Easiest Christmas Drinks

There are few things I love more than cosying up on the sofa with a mug of hot chocolate. Especially when you incorporate festive flavours into the mix! Here I have three of the easiest hot chocolate recipes that'll make it that little bit more interesting and are perfect for the Christmas period. They each require only a few ingredients with minimal steps involved! I've even popped in a hack on how you can use up those almost empty Nutella jars!

Orange Hot Chocolate (makes 2)
You'll Need:
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 strips orange peel
  • 2 tsps (heaped) drinking chocolate
  • 50g milk chocolate
  • Put milk, orange, drinking chocolate and milk chocolate in a saucepan. 
  • Heat in a pan on low heat for 2-3 minutes (or until desired temperature), stirring to avoid burning.
  • Top with cream and grated orange zest.
Cinnamon Hot Chocolate (makes 1)
You'll Need:
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 2 tsps (heaped) drinking chocolate
  • Pop the milk, cinnamon and drinking chocolate in a saucepan. Stir until cinnamon and chocolate is fully dissolved.
  • Heat in pan for 2-3 minutes, ensuring you stir it to avoid burning.
  • Top with cream and ground cinnamon.
Nutella Hot Chocolate (makes 1 cup)
You'll Need:
  • Almost empty Nutella jar
  • 1 cup milk
  • Heat milk in saucepan for 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour hot milk into Nutella Jar and stir, ensuring that you've mixed in the remaining Nutella.
  • Pour into cup and enjoy!
How easy are they? These are the perfect drinks for Christmas and you can make them in no time! Be sure to let me know if you try them out!
