Coconut Hot Chocolate

Ever tried a boozy hot chocolate? Whip up this blend of white chocolate, coconut rum and fresh coconut flakes and you may never look back. If you want to make a version for the children, just leave out the rum.

Coconut Hot Chocolate


150ml whole milk
25g white chocolate, chopped
25ml coconut-flavoured rum (we used Malibu)
1 tsp finely grated dark chocolate
1 tsp coconut flakes, toasted (optional)


Pour the milk into a small pan and then place over a medium heat until simmering, stirring so it doesn’t scorch. Remove the pan from the heat then add the white chocolate and stir. Once the chocolate has melted, place the pan back on the heat to warm through. Add the coconut-flavoured rum and pour into a mug.

Garnish with the dark chocolate and a few toasted coconut flakes if you like.
