DIY Orange Hot Chocolate

I wouldn't particularly pass a Terry's Chocolate Orange off as a classic Christmas chocolate, but I would pass oranges off as a classic Christmas fruit. For me, the smell of oranges screams Christmas. I think that once you've visited a Christmas market you'll agree with me. Hot chocolate is also popular in winter months, so a chocolate orange hot chocolate served in orange peel cups seemed pretty relevant for Christmas time. This recipe is divine and my entire family loved theirs, so it's worth giving a go. I promise. 

I got all of my ingredients from Sainsburys, for those wondering. I wasn't able to find paper straws, so I just used the oranges without the lids as cups. Not as cute, but you still get the zingy taste. 

*To serve 4*
You'll need:
- 8 Segments of Terry's chocolate orange
- 200ml Milk (I used semi-skimmed)
- 4 Large oranges
- Paper straws

Directions for the orange cups:
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the tops off of the oranges to act as the lids
  • Hollow out the oranges using a tablespoon (save & sieve the insides for fresh, smooth orange juice!)
  • Using a small knife, cut out the 'stem' of the orange lid, creating a hole for the straws
  • Cut the straws to the correct length

Directions for the hot chocolate:
  • Gently heat the milk in a saucepan, stirring constantly
  • Break the chocolate into segments and add to the milk
  • Keep stirring until the chocolate melts
  • Using a ladle, fill the orange cups with hot chocolate and enjoy!

Make sure you buy larger oranges so that they are sturdy, meaning they won't roll over.

Let me know if you try these out.
