After Eight Hot Chocolate Recipe with @Muddy_bootlaces


The final recipe of this Christmas season by @muddy_bootlaces is a delicous after eight hot chocolate.


  • Plant based milk
  • 2-3 heaped tbsp hot chocolate powder 
  • 1/2 - 1 cap of peppermint essence 
  • Whippy cream 
  • Chocolate sauce
  • 3 after eights 

Note to any vegan/dairy free people: many fake after eights are vegan and the Cadbury chocolate powder which says "just add milk" contains no milk powder so is safe to use.


Step 1: Pour the plant-based milk into your mug (to make one portion size), then add this to a stove on medium heat.

Step 2: When almost boiled, stir in the hot chocolate powder and drop in a cap of peppermint essence.

Step 3: Heat for another few minutes before removing from the heat

Step 4: squirt on a big dollop of vegan whippy cream 

Step 5: decorate with chocolate sauce, after eights and sprinkles 


You can also adapt this for the little ones to make a candy cane hot chocolate by removing the after eights and chocolate sauce and replacing these with a candy cane and red sauce.


Enjoy! ❤️
