Dutch cocoa from Belgium.
Wait, shouldn't Dutch cocoa come from Holland?
Nope! Dutch or "dutched" cocoa is actually just cocoa that has been processed in a specific way to have its acidity neutralised. This gives the cocoa a smooth, earthy flavour and a rich, dark colour.
Follow our instructions for the perfect hot chocolate:
1. In a generously sized mug put 2 teaspoons of Dutch Cocoa and 3 teaspoons of sugar. (This just is a suggested starting point - adjust the ratio to suit your taste.)
2. Run the tap until the water is hot, and put a dash of hot water into the bottom of the mug. Mix to make a thick paste. Use a minimum of water.
3. Pour in hot milk from the stove, slowly, stirring as you go, OR:
3. Pour in cold milk slowly, stirring as you go then microwave for 1-2 minutes.
