Chocolate Milk

  • There are very few things that I do not like to eat or drink.
  • But one thing I do not like is a drink made with hot milk.
  • However I love cold chocolate milk or chocolate milkshake.
  • The basis of this drink is my recipe for chocolate sauce.
  • You can leave out the egg yolks but they do make the drink more nourishing.
  • You can keep the base in a bottle with a cap in the fridge for a few days.

    Ingredients

  • 250ml of milk (full fat is best)
  • 50g of granulated sugar
  • 20g of cocoa or 50g of dark chocolate
  • 1-1½ tablespoonfuls of potato starch (you can use cornflour – if potato flour is not available)
  • 2 egg yolks – optional.
  • *
  • Cold milk to mix up the drink.

Method – with cocoa

    • Put 150ml of the milk into a saucepan.
    • Heat gently – stirring all the time until boiling point.
    • Take it of the heat.
    • Blend together the rest of the milk (100ml) with the sugar, cocoa and potato flour.
    • Add the heated milk to this and stir well.
    • Put the mixture back in the pan and heat gently, stirring till it thickens .
    • Add the egg yolks and stir these well in.
    • Leave to go cold and pour into a lidded bottle or similar.
    • Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Method – with chocolate

      • Put 150ml of the milk into a saucepan.
      • Add the chocolate.
      • Heat gently – stirring all the time until boiling point.
      • Check that all the chocolate has dissolved.
      • Take it of the heat.
      • Blend together the rest of the milk (100ml) with the sugar and potato flour .
      • Add the heated milk and chocolate to this and stir well.
      • Put the mixture back in the pan and heat gently, stirring till it thickens .
      • Add the egg yolks and stir these well in.
      • Leave to go cold and pour into a lidded bottle or similar.
      • Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Mix the chocolate base with cold milk to taste.

I love cooking and baking. I love trying out new recipes and currently am trying out many old favourites from my Polish cookbooks and family recipes. I am trying out many variations, often to make them easier but still delicious. I collect glass cake stands and china tableware, mainly tea plates, jugs and serving dishes, many of which I use on a daily basis. They are an eclectic mixture from the 20th & 21st century.
