Duo of hot chocolates.

“Think of these as two sides of the chocolate coin, one as white and sweet as Snow White, the other dark and a little tangy, like the best Wicked Witch” – Matt Preston


Duo of hot chocolates




  • Milk frother

White hot chocolate

  • 2 teaspoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 15g white chocolate, broken into squares
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) milk, warmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 white marshmallows
  • Freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Dark hot chocolate

  • 1/2 teaspoon icing sugar mixture
  • 1 teaspoon orange jelly crystals
  • 1/2 teaspoon citric acid
  • 15g dark chocolate (85% cocoa), finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon thickened cream
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) milk, warmed, plus extra, to brush
  • Orange zest, to decorate (optional)


  1. For the white hot chocolate, drizzle the inside of a 250ml (1 cup) heatproof glass with the condensed milk. Place the chocolate in the glass. Use a milk frother to froth the milk and vanilla in a jug, then pour over the chocolate. Top with the marshmallows. Sprinkle with nutmeg, if using, and top with the cherry.
  2. For the dark hot chocolate, combine the sugar, jelly crystals and citric acid on a plate. 3 Place the chocolate and cream in a small heatproof bowl. Microwave on medium, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and combined. Drizzle the chocolate sauce into a 250ml (1 cup) heatproof glass, turning to coat the inside and the rim. Dip the rim into the sherbet. Use a milk frother to froth the milk. Pour the hot milk into the glass and stir to mix slightly. Top with orange zest, if using.
