Baby, it's cold outside! Grab a mug of this chai hot chocolate and gather round a warm, crackling fire for the ultimate winter-warmer!
Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 4 cups
  • 1¼ cups water
  • 4 chai tea bags
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 2.5 ounces (70g) dark chocolate, chopped
  1. Pour water into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Cover with a lid and let steep for 15 minutes.
  2. Add milk and stir. Leaving the tea bags in the pan, place over medium heat (do not allow to boil), whisking occasionally, until the mixture is steaming and at a hot, but drinkable, temperature. Note, if you have a gas stove, take care of the overhanging strings from the tea bags so that they don't come near the flame.
  3. Remove from heat and whisk in the remaining ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  4. Serve immediately with marshmallows (and/or whipped cream!) and a little dusting of ground cinnamon.
