Recipe by Chef Soomro Course: Bonfire Night drinks


Prep time

2 mins


  • Milk: 600ml full-fat milk
  • Plain Chocolate: 200g plain chocolate (we used 70% cocoa)
  • Rum: a nip of rum or brandy for the adults (optional)
  • Vanilla: vanilla ice cream
  • Marshmallow: mini marshmallows


  1. Break 200g plain chocolate (I used 70% cocoa) into cubes and put into a pan with 600ml full-fat milk. Gently heat until the chocolate melts, then bring almost to the boil, whisking regularly until even and smooth. Can be made ahead, then chilled for up to 2 days.
  2. Re-heat if necessary, whisking, then ladle or pour into heatproof glasses or mugs. Top with scoops vanilla ice cream and mini marshmallows. Add a nip of rum or brandy for the adults, if you like.
