Hot chocolate and cocoa twirls

Children seem to love hot chocolate and it obviously needs no recipe – anyone can make their own delicious version with no instruction. But you do have to be wary of the ingredients if you are dairy allergic. Most drinking chocolate powder contains milk, and most cocoa  ‘may contain traces of milk protein’. The only totally ‘safe’ brand I have come across is Clipper, Luxurious Organic Drinking Chocolate (available from Waitrose). This combined with Oatly oat milk (only the non-organic as it is calcium enriched) makes a fabulous ‘creamy’ and nutritious hot choc. For the full experience top with Soyatoo squirty soya/rice cream and mini marshmallows!

These cocoa twirls go exceptionally well with the hot chocolate and are inspired by The Vegan Boulangerie by Marianne and Jean-Michel
