If I told you that you can make a show-stopping, ultra-indulgent pudding, fit to impress with only two ingredients… would you believe me?
Believe it or not, it only takes a couple of minutes using your Hot Chocolate Shaker to whip up a storm in the kitchen. It couldn’t be easier. To achieve this super elegant dessert, you simply have to shake a small amount of warm liquid into your chocolate. If the right ratio of chocolate to liquid is maintained, the hot chocolate will set to a gloriously gooey, spoonable dessert. In this recipe, we decided to add a little honey and a few raspberries, but it’s just as delicious without.
- 61% Dark Colombian Hot Chocolate Drops: 50g/2 Parts (on the side of the shaker)
- Hot Semi-Skimmed Milk: 50g/1 Part
- A generous squeeze of honey
- A few raspberries to garnish
- Pour your Hot Chocolate Drops into the bottom of the shaker, being careful only to fill the shaker up to level 2.
- Add hot milk (never boiling) to level 3. At this stage, you might choose to add a generous squeeze of honey for some natural sweetness.
- Ensure the Popping Lid is reset (in the pushed down position) before securing it to the shaker base.
- Gently pour into a small ramekin bowl or cocktail glass. Here, we used shot glasses for a little after dinner treat. Clean up the edges if you spill anything. You might also choose to set a couple of raspberries on top of your desserts for decoration.
- Refrigerate for a couple of hours until the dessert is softly set.
Please note: With this method, if you alter the liquid or chocolate from this recipe, it will alter the end results. The quantities used in this recipe are specific to the specified chocolate and liquid. Using supermarket style chocolate may not work in the same way, as many cheaper chocolates contain less cocoa butter which is the key ingredient in making the dessert set. When you’re at the pouring stage, the chocolate should be a thick, pouring consistency. If it is too thin and runny, it may not set, so it’s worth a trial run before your guests arrive!
