I'm not really sure when exactly the unicorn craze started, but these days, unicorns seems to be everywhere. And they are not just for the children. There is definitely something mystical about unicorns - they might or might not be real, they have wonderful flowing hair and they love rainbow colours. If you like me, think that we could all do with some magic in our lives, here is a little something to bring that rainbow into your day...
Unicorn Hot Chocolate Recipe
Here is what you need:
White chocolate, chopped in small pieces (or white chocolate drops)
Food colouring - pink, blue or purple
Rainbow sweets or any other pastel coloured sweets
Chocolate or icecream sauces
Pretty drinking straw
Here is what to do:
Simply heat the milk in a small saucepan or in a microwave and add the white chocolate to taste. Depending on how sweet you like your chocolate, 200 ml of milk might need about 50g of white chocolate. You can add a drizzle of chocolate sauce (or any other sweet sauce) - the more loaded your glass is the better it looks!
Add a few drops of food colouring to make the white chocolate turn purple or blue or whatever colour you like. Add whipped cream and top with loads of sugar sprinkles, sweets and marshmallows.
If you wanted to make the hundreds and thousands circle around the glass, melt a little bit of white chocolate first (on it's own). Pour a little bit of the chocolate on a baking parchment and cover the glass on the top with the chocolate. Quickly place on to a plate with sugar sprinkles. Leave to set before adding the hot chocolate drink. Try not to add too much, so that the chocolate on the rim will melt straightaway.
Let me know how you get on with your unicorn chocolate drinks!
Until next time
