A royal drink!
This royal hot chocolate was given to King Olav after he had been out skiing. It is deliciously rich and every chocolate lover will be amazed by it. The chocolate and whipped cream makes this silky smooth and perfectly sweet. This can be made as the orignal, with plant milk or low fodmap friendly by using dark chocolate and lactose free milk. The sweetness of it all depends on what chocolate you use. The original recipe calls for a 44% chocolate, but a darker one will decrease the sweetness and up the bitterness, which some might prefer. The recipe is from a book called “Kong Olavs Kakao – Kongelige menyer for gode anledninger».
A bit too decadent for you? you can make it more on the lighter side by using low fat milk and skip the cream. The chocolate is more than enough for some.
