Chai Spiced White Hot Chocolate is a sweet yet delicate blend of frothy milk, white chocolate and Indian spices. It is indulgent and warming and makes the perfect drink now the chillier days of Autumn are emerging.
When I was growing up I’d occasionally end up on a day trip, just me and my Mum, to our nearest city (Nottingham) for a bit of shopping. Back then, there was not a Starbucks or a Costa on every street corner. Instead there were independent cafes, even in some of the department stores. It was bliss, even if I didn’t realise it at the time. If I was lucky (which was 99.9% of the time) we would have time to stop off for a drink. And you’ve guessed it, I had a favourite place to go based on the quality of hot chocolate I could slurp there. It came topped with whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa powder and a chocolate flake. It was my childhood self’s dream come true.
Perhaps it’s due to these trips with my mother, that I’ve always had a nostalgic affection for hot chocolate. It makes me feel better if I’m down and positively buzzing if I’m already happy….
