Amaretto Hot Chocolate


This is honestly one of the best hot chocolate recipes we’ve created. It’s quick to make, combines sweet nutty flavours with rich cacao – and is the perfect Winter warmer. Plus, you can add a shot (or two) of amaretto to get in the festive mood. Enjoy!

  • 3 tsp raw cacao powder

  • 1 tsp honey or sweetener of choice (add more or less depending on your sweet tooth).

  • 250ml liquid – we recommend 100ml hot water and 150ml nut milk

  • 1 tsp Perfect Nut Butter

  • Optional: 1 shot of Amaretto

  • Cinnamon stick or cloves to serve

Method 1:

  1. Put the cacao powder, honey and nut butter into a mug. Add the hot water and stir thoroughly to make a thick chocolate sauce.

  2. Heat up your milk on the hob or in a milk frother and slowly add it to the chocolate paste; stirring until the ingredients are well combined.

Method 2:

  1. If you’re making this recipe on the hob, put the cacao powder, honey and nut butter in a saucepan.

  2. Add your liquid and gently heat, stirring / whisking thoroughly to create a smooth consistency.

Method 3:

  1. If you’re making the hot chocolate in a blender, simply blend the cacao, honey, nut butter and milk / water and before transferring it into a saucepan and heating.

If you want to feel festive and warm instead, add the optional shot of Amaretto once the hot chocolate is ready for a gorgeous sweet almond flavour. Serve with a cinnamon stick or cloves to release its spicy flavour.
