Our Hot Chocolate Flakes are produced by an independent chocolatier and create the most indulgent mug of Hot Chocolate. To make, we find using an espresso machine helps to make this super creamy. No espresso machine? You can heat in a pan at home instead. Find the instructions to both on the underside of the label.

Here at Two Chimps Coffee, we love a good Hot Chocolate, and let’s face it; who doesn’t?

Here is our guide to making hot chocolate using an espresso machine.

Let’s Go!

To make a hot chocolate using an espresso machine, you will need:

  • A Mug
  • Two Chimps Hot Chocolate Flakes
  • Milk Jug
  • Milk

Right, let's begin!

Firstly, pour 300ml of fresh milk into your milk jug. Then add two heaped tablespoons (20g) of chocolate flakes.

Next, steam the milk and chocolate mix until hot. It is ready when you can no longer touch the bottom of the jug for more that one second without having to remove your hand from the hot steel.

Lastly, pour into your favourite mug.
