Frivolous but necessary: I am on a quest for good drinking chocolate. Spring has turned to winter where I'm living and I need this stuff badly brew

Tried green & blacks - ok
Clipper Super cosy - very nice but my sainsburys have stopped selling it confused Just bought Taste the Difference milk hot chocolate - disappointing ..

Anyone know any brands that taste lovely and are not full of emulsifiers?
thankssmile

Buy a bar of nice dark choc. Grate 2 or 3 tbs into a mug. Pour a small amount of hot water to melt it. Heat up 200mls of milk and pour on whilst stirring. Delicious.

When I used to eat dairy I used to put a big dollop of nutella in a mug and then add some hot milk. Stir until nutella has melted and it was devine!

Use actual chocolate melted in warm milk. Add a pinch of chilli powder too.

Plain cocoa powder and milk (and a little sugar!) is what we have here... best ever.
I mix up the sugar and cocoa in a few drops/a splash of boiling water first to ensure mixes properly, add milk, then microwave (or hob).

Add any chocolate you like to milk and heat in a pan until melted then thicken with a bit of cornflour

Weve just had or hot chocolate.
We use Charbonnel et Walker.
Dp and Ds had cream and chipotle flakes on theirs!
Mine was apparently nude, according to them!

I don’t think they stock it year round, but Lidl do a luxury hit chocolate in a tin, which is little chocolate chips that you melt in milk, and is one of the nicest I have tried, not very sweet, which is my preference

As my username suggests, I am quite keen on hot chocolate. I don't drink tea or coffee so it's the only hot drink I have. This is my absolute favourite: www.waitrose.com/ecom/products/charbonnel-walker-the-chocolate-drink-original/394896-145456-145457?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_4uKiova4QIV7LXtCh0vmAp9EAQYASABEgIY0vD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
