We can’t deny it anymore, with the clocks going back over the weekend and the sudden drop in temperature it is time to announce autumn is well and truly here. Although I am a real summer girl, I have to admit autumn is my second favourite season! I absolutely adore getting cosy and there is nothing better to warm your cockles than a mug of hot chocolate. So today we have created everyones favourite winter beverage but with a naughty twist!
Today’s post is especially exciting for us as it is the first time we have used our brand new Cricut Explore! Seriously this is the most amazing piece of kit and we will be sharing lots more about it with you over the next few weeks so stay tuned! For now enjoy your cocoa!
Supplies for 1 portion: 100 ml Water// 50 g Dark Chocolate// 1 Cinnamon Stick// 250 ml Milk// 1-2 tbsp Cointreau (orange liqueur)// Whipped cream// Cocoa powder//
Step 1: Add the chocolate, water and cinnamon to a saucepan and heat until the chocolate has melted.
Step 2: Add the milk and bring to the boil.
Step 3: Add the Cointreau.
Step 4: Serve with whipped cream and use our free pumpkin printable to create a festive twist on your hot chocolate! Once you’ve saved the JPEG you can upload it directly to your Cricut design space to cut out or you can simply print it onto card and cut it out yourself. Here is to an awesome autumn!
