Whilst at the supermarket yesterday I came across a rather lovely little tin of Charbonnel et Walker drinking chocolate which I became very excited over as this is the first time I have seen this brand of hot chocolate in Sainsburys.
Therefore the 300g Charbonnel et Walker tin of drinking chocolate went into my shopping trolley.
Yesterday while I packed away my Easter decorations with only 199 days till Christmas decided that I would have a hot chocolate made with water. The directions say add 4 teaspoons of the chocolate to boiling water this however didn’t taste of anything. To produce a reasonable cup of hot chocolate I added a total of 8 teaspoons.
Made with water the Charbonnel et Walker hot chocolate tasted very poor.
So today with 198 days till Christmas I decided to try a Charbonnel et Walker hot chocolate made with hot milk. Again instead of the recommend 4 teaspoons I ended up adding 6 teaspoons. This time my hot chocolate was definitely more enjoyable and I will most certainly when using this mixture make it with milk.
I was a little disappointed however with this drinking chocolate especially with Charbonnel et Walker being such a prestigious company.
Happy Tuesday Friends!
