The cold weather has set in and the infamous Coca Cola advert has been aired on TV, it’s official, its almost Christmas! If ever there was a season to indulge, then it’s this one, and what could be better than a steaming cup of deliciously rich hot chocolate packed full of festive flavours? A great way to expand your hot drinks menu and boost profits during the winter months. Here’s our top 5 festive flavoured hot chocolates, we hope you like them.

Gingerbread Hot Chocolate
Perfectly infused with ginger spice, this festive flavoured chocolate is the perfect way to warm up when stepping in from the cold. Rich dark hot chocolate enhanced with the flavour and aroma of freshly baked gingerbread, use one shot (10ml) of gingerbread syrup for an 8-10oz drink and two shots (20ml) for 12oz and above. Top with whipped cream, mini marshmallows and dark chocolate shavings for an extra special treat.

Hazelnut Hot Chocolate
Reminiscent of Ferrero Rocher, this hazelnut hot chocolate is rich and dreamy and incredibly popular at Christmas time. Use one shot (10ml) of hazelnut syrup for an 8-10oz drink and two shots (20ml) for 12oz and above. Top with whipped cream, mini marshmallows, a sprinkling of chopped nuts and dark chocolate shavings, and serve with a Ferrero Rocher on the side.

Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate
Rich and creamy hot chocolate with undertones of classic toasted marshmallow flavour, a great winter warmer recipe, and one that children will love too. Use one shot (10ml) of toasted marshmallow syrup for an 8-10oz drink and two shots (20ml) for 12oz and above. Top with whipped cream, mini marshmallows and dark chocolate shavings for an extra indulgent drink.

Honeycomb Hot Chocolate
Thank Crunchie it’s Christmas! This recipe reminds us of Cadbury Crunchie bars, deliciously sweet and incredibly moreish. The perfect treat to refuel after a long night Christmas shopping in the cold. Use one shot (10ml) of honeycomb syrup for an 8-10oz drink and two shots (20ml) for 12oz and above. Top with whipped cream, a dusting of chocolate and maybe a light sprinkling of crushed up Crunchie.

Chocolate Orange
Decadent and indulgent, with tangy orange tones, this deeply intense flavoured hot chocolate is a winner for the festive period. Use one shot (10ml) of orange syrup for an 8-10oz drink and two shots (20ml) for 12oz and above. Top with whipped cream and a dusting of chocolate. Garnish with a curl of orange peel.

All of these drinks can be made using a traditional espresso machine, simply add the syrups to the milk before steaming. You can also use an automatic commercial coffee machine to make these recipes. Simply select a hot chocolate then add the syrups and toppings.
