It’s that time of year where we all love those coffee shops hot chocolates, festive lattes or to come home and curl up in front of the fire with a hot drink. I’ve done a very simple fast and cute topping for your hot drinks which adults and kids alike will love!
What you will need:
300ml double cream
A baking tin
And that’s it!!! It really is a very simple recipe.
- Whisk the cream until set, not to firm but not runny either. Line a baking tin with parchment paper and pour the cream in, you’re looking for around 1/3 inch thickness and then level the cream using a pallet knife or spatula to get as smooth a finish as possible and put into the freezer for approx 30 mins. The cream should be set but not frozen solid.
2. Take your choice of shapes, gingerbread men are great for this time of year! Have a bowl of warm water to dip your shapes in between each cut and this will help them slice through the frozen cream. If the cream starts to crack leave out the freezer a little longer as still to firm.
3. Return to the freezer until ready to use. Kids will love making these and drinking the hot chocolate after. You can also use these to add to lots of other things such as creamy soups, curry sauces.
