How to make a steaming cup of goodness!

MICROWAVE METHOD

  • Pour 200ml of milk of your choice into a 500ml - 1L microwave safe jug (your Kōkō Chaud will spill over if you use a smaller jug).

  • Scoop 3 heaped tablespoons (about 30-40g) full of Kōkō Chaud into the jug. Don’t worry at this point about stirring it.

  • Heat on high for 1 minute.

  • Give it a good whisk.

  • Heat for a further 1 to 2 minutes and give it another good whisk. If it is not as thick as you would like you can heat it a further 30 seconds to 1 minute, checking it carefully to make sure it doesn't overflow.

  • Pour into a cup, let cool to preferred temperature, and enjoy!

    STOVETOP METHOD

  • Pour 200ml of milk of your choice into a small to medium sized pot.

  • Scoop 3 heaped tablespoons (about 30-40g) full of Kōkō Chaud into the pot.

  • Heat on medium heat on the stovetop whisking from time to time, being careful not to let it bubble over or stick to the pot.

  • Once it is hot and thick to your liking, pour into a cup, let it cool slightly and enjoy!

    HANDY TIPS

  • For faster cups in the future, make a larger batch, let cool completely, pour into a suitable bottle and keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. Heat as much as you need, or for a cool treat - drink it cold! (we won’t even judge if you drink it straight from the bottle!)

  • The above instructions are just a suggestion. If you find your Kōkō Chaud is:

    1. not sweet enough – go ahead and add a little sugar;

    2. too strong – use less Kōkō Chaud in the next batch or add more milk;

    3. lacking a stronger chocolate hit – reduce your milk, or add more chocolate, or, maybe for your next Kōkō Chaud order, you may wish to order a darker chocolate blend;

    4. too thick – cook it for a shorter period,

    5. not thick enough to eat with a spoon like a dessert – add a cornflour slurry (this can be made with 1/2tsp cornflour mixed into a tablespoon of cold milk. Once you whisk this into your Kōkō Chaud you will need to recook it for the cornflour to thicken).
