Spiced Caramel Hot Chocolate

I've recently heard that chocolate is the newest superfood (like I need an excuse to eat more chocolate!) My latest obession is this delicious warm and spicy hot chocolate and now I can enjoy it without a smidgeon of guilt!


Serves: 2


  • 200 g dark chocolate 
  • 2 star anise 
  • Cinnamon, dusted 
  • 2-3 cups milk 
  • 1-2 tots brandy or amarula 
  • Nestle caramel treat 


  • In a bowl, suspended over a saucepan of water on a medium to low heat, melt the dark chocolate. Pour into a clean saucepan over a low heat and add anise and a dusting of cinnamon.
  • Slowly add milk and brandy or Amarula, if desired. Spoon a dollop of Nestle Caramel Treat into four glasses and top up with the hot chocolate.
