100g70% dark chocolatefinely chopped
1cupmilk of choice(250ml)
Heat the cream in a saucepan over medium heat until scalded (until small bubbles begin to form) then take the cream off the heat.
Pour the cream over the chocolate and salt in a bowl and leave to sit for 5 minutes then stir until combined, add peppermint extract and stir to combine. Leave to cool and put in the fridge.
Scoop 2 tablespoons or two small balls into a mug with a splash of hot milk and whisk together until melted into a chocolate pool. You can do this in the microwave or in a saucepan over a low/medium heat too. Once melted add more hot milk and sweeten with maple syrup if desired and stir together. Top with your favourite toppings, I used whipped cream, chocolate shavings and marshmallows.
