    Why am I so tempted to make a joke about 70s bands here?

    Anyway, for the most part, what I've had so far is quite good, but I don't really have it that often.

    Now I want hot chocolate.

    I LOVE the powder and hot milk combo, with one of the whizz things that froths it up, with whipped cream and marshmallows on top!

    Although I would recommend a chocolate spoon with hot milk, google that and you'll be in hot chocolate heaven my friend.

    I am a hot chocolate fan since I don't like tea or coffee.

    It is my hot beverage of choice.:tea:

    I quite like Mac Donald's hot chocolate. It's pretty cheap and super sweet. I've burned my mouth with it a few times though.

    Favourite powder brand would have to be original Options hot chocolate with hot milk and mini marshmallows of course!

    Omg I love hot chocolate :daydreaming: haven't had it in a while, but it's getting colder again now so that may change :excited:

    Hate the ones you make with water, it's gotta be milk (almond milk tho cos cow's milk tastes awful to me lol). And the best instant one..... probably the galaxy one or the options white chocolate one :yep:

    Homemade hot chocolate with cream, a flake and chocolate/ caramel syrup on a rainy morning when it’s dark enough to not get up yet, but light enough to open your curtains and watch British Bake Off before you have to start work..is the best.

    I recently bought Hotel Chocolat's milky hot chocolat and tried it last night. It took me about 30 minutes to make and it was... okay. Not worth the money imo but I'll obviously keep using it to use it up. I prefer the instant stuff. Cadbury's or Galaxy is awesome, although I love trying new ones. Gotta have mini marshmallows though.

    There's a US supermarket chain called kroger and they have an own brand instant one with little mini marshmallows in. It is delicious, reasonably priced, and they don't skimp on the marshmallows either. I make it with water then top it off with some half cream and half milk. :drool:

    ...For the genuinely confuzzled: Back in the day, there was a band called Hot Chocolate - scored various top-ten hits, but only one chart-topper (So You Win Again, 1977). Speaking of 70s bands, they're currently playing Queen covers on BBC Radio 2, but that's slightly less related to nice warm beverages than my previous musical topic of discussion...

    Has to be with milk, not hot water. I quite liked Cadbury's but not much else in terms of what you can buy for home here, but since my year abroad in Spain, I've gotten used to their Colacao brand which is really nice. I brought a 800g tub back with me last month for uni lol.

    I also like to buy a can of whipped cream to use on top.
