Bonfire Night

With Halloween been and gone the next thing in the social calendar is Bonfire Night…

“Remember, remember the fifth of November, Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason Should ever be forgot.” Guy Fawkes


Traditionally Bonfire Night is in place to commemorate the  failed attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But now, Bonfire Night is a perfect time to rally round with friends and family, wrap up warm and head out into the autumnal night and embrace the cold and watch some fireworks and see the sky light up with an array of colours and listen to the crack and fizz of the fireworks.  Afterwards it is perfect to head home and warm up with one of my favourite drinks of all time – HOT CHOCOLATE!


Not just any Hot Chocolate – proper Hot Chocolate.  So I thought I would share with you my favourite recipe.


600ml Milk
100g Chopped Chocolate
142ml Double Cream

Pour the milk, double cream and chopped chocolate into a pan. Bring slowly to the boil, whisking until smooth. Serve in individual cups or mugs and top with toppings of your choice eg. whipped cream, grated chocolate or for the adults a splash of your favourite tipple!
