For 2 people

500 ml milk

2 tablespoons cocoa

1-2 tablespoons raw sugar

1 cinnamon stick

1 star anise

3 cm piece of dried ginger

½ chilli, coarsely chopped


Mix the cocoa and sugar in a saucepan. Pour a dash of milk and stir until making a thick batter. Add the remainder of the milk while stirring. Add the spices and bring to the boil. Let simmer for a few minutes. Pour into mugs through a sieve (cutting board) and top with mini marshmallows.


TIP 1: replace marshmallows with lightly whipped cream and top with grated nutmeg.
