Winter has well & truly arrived & nothing warms you on a cold night quite like a delectably rich hot chocolate. Below, my very favourite recipe from Donna Hay :

+ 200g good-quality dark chocolate, chopped
+ 200g good-quality milk chocolate, chopped 
+ 4 vanilla beans, split
+ 1⅓ cups (330ml) single (pouring) cream
+ 1 cup (250ml) milk
+ marshmallows and cocoa, to serve

  Divide the chocolate and vanilla beans between 4 glasses. Place the cream and milk in a saucepan over low heat and simmer for 2–3 minutes or until warmed through. Pour over the chopped chocolate, stirring until the chocolate is dissolved. Top with marshmallows and dust with cocoa to serve. 
Makes 4. 

Stay warm & have a beautiful week -- xx
