Hot chocolate is in my opinion, the perfect study aid. You’ll nearly always find a large mug full on my next the night before an exam. Why? Because chocolate always seems to lift my spirits ever so slightly. It’s a real comfort drink, that really hits the spot! This literally knocks the socks off any store bought powders, and gives Starbucks a good run for their money. It takes less than 5 minutes to make, and you really need to try it to believe it.


  1. Place the milk and cinnamon stick into a small saucepan and heat over a medium-low heat for 3 – 4 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile finely chop the chocolate and place it into a large heat-proof bowl.
  3. Pour in the milk and whisk until the chocolate has melted and combined with the milk.
  4. Pour into cups and serve immediately, cinnamon sticks optional.
