Which I can buy from the supermarket or high street?

I love hot chocolate this time of year but I find most of be supermarket offerings to be too sweet and watery. I like darker and a bit richer.

I know I can make it myself with some dark chocolate but I'd like a tin of something as a back up because dark chocolate doesn't last very long in this house!

I'd use Green and Black's cocoa just stirred into milk. No sugar needed.

No idea but hope you get some good ideas.

When I'm out, I quite enjoy McDonald's hc.

Spanish chocolate company hot chocolate. Properly thick and creamy

get chocolate that you like and melt it into slowly into full fat (or even better, gold top)'s the best way

Powders and premixes are never that good, and I also think a lot of the fancier ones that are mostly chocolate shavings are iffy too....imo because the chocolate is pre grated or chopped it get dry and dusty.

I really like a little waft of nutmeg over the milk as it starts to steam and maybe a tiny sloosh of something extra, like amaretto or whatever you fancy

Also a teeny smidge of espresso powder can give a bit of something to anything chocolatey

Link here. Aldi sometimes have it and Asda

Ignore the milk alternative bit, I sometimes use gold top milk grin

I think I've had that Spanish one before! I used to get a good one from Ocado but can't remember what it was sad

Thanks everyone for the suggestions so far.

I can recommend the Twinings hot chocolate - it's very yummy.

I don't like sweet things and find hot chocolates too sweet. I just heat milk in microwave and stir in Green & Blacks or Van Houten cocoa powder. I don't sweeten it at all. The milk gives it enough sweetness.

If you find it too bitter initially you could add a little sugar and then reduce it.

Your favourite chocolate in a saucepan with cream & milk, delicious and no shop bought will come close.

If you don’t want sweet coco powder will be fine with no added sugar

Whittard hot choclates are very good

Favourite chocolate, hot milk, nutribullet, blend.

And that's it, alcohol may be added to taste.

The nutribullet (other blenders are available) means you can make it in seconds and it's rich and thick and lovely 😄

It’s not make-at-home but Paul and Apostrophe (both high street cafes) do delicious hot chocolates. Way thicker and more flavoursome (in a chocolatey, rather than sweet, way) than Starbucks, Costa, etc.

Twinings Swiss Chocolate drink. Made with full fat milk. Perfect.

It was £2.50 in Aldi recently. I am on my second tub, and have a third in the cupboard!
