  6. Leave to cool just a little, then sit back, relax and indulge. 
  7. Feel free to embellish your mug of hot chocolate with a little extra deliciousness – a few marshmallows, a dollop of whipping cream, a little grating of chocolate or nutmeg, even a bit of orange zest (you may want to add a dash of orange essence if you add the zest) – the choice is yours.
