Proper Cocoa - serves 1
Approx 300ml of milk (or what your mug of choice will hold)
1 rounded tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (not hot chocolate)
2 tsp light muscovado sugar or another light brown sugar
2 tbsp double (heavy) cream (or more if you like)
Chocolate or cocoa to decorate (optional)
Put all apart from 1tbsp of the milk into a microwavable jug and microwave for 90 secs (category E, 850W). Mix the remainder of the milk in the mug you will serve it in with cocoa and the sugar until it forms a paste.
While the milk is heating, whisk the cream until it forms firmish peaks but don't overwhisk.
Pour the hot milk onto the paste and stir well. Microwave for another 30-40 seconds or until hot enough for your liking.
Either spoon or pipe the cream on top (much better than squirty cream, trust me) and sprinkle with cocoa or chocolate if liked, then serve. Instant body central heating. Hmmmmmm.
