I’ve been pretty obsessed with Pinterest these last few weeks, it’s a really fun way to find new ideas and collect things you want to do together. I’ve even got a board for recipes I want to try out now 😀 Woo motivation!
So one of the recipes I collected was an awesome looking strawberry hot chocolate thingy made from melted icecream. I fell in love with how adorable it looked but the ingredients seemed a bit rich for my taste. You can see the original photos and recipe here.
Anyway, we had a movie night the other day and marathoned awesomely terrible 90’s teen movies, what better to do than try my own version: lazy bunny strawberry hot chocolate ^_^
What you need:
Get your ingredients ready or if needed run to the 7/11 because you’re silly and you didn’t plan this ahead 😉
Put the cream in a bowl and whip. If you have no clean bowls and your kitchen is totally dirty because you have done any washing up for days then tupperware will do nicely.
I can’t believe I actually whipped my own cream, that’s like the only part of this entire recipe which isn’t lazy XD
Break up some chocolate and microwave it 30 sec at a time until it’s all melty.
Mix it well so it’s consistant and easy to pour.
Get your fancy cup and dip the top in the melted chocolate.
Pour some of the pink milk into a mug and microwave it for 30sec at a time, stirring until it’s hot. Be careful not to boil it! Fancy people would probably do this on a stove… but it’s hard to be fancy when you’re about to sit down and watch Clueless and the original version of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie… and Can’t Hardly Wait 😀 😀 😀
Pur the hot pink milk into the glass, the chocolate should have set a bit by now so it won’t just run everywhere. If you were smart you would have realised that it’s hard to pour from a mug into the tiny mouth of a mini wine glass so you would have transferred the milk into a milk jug BEFORE spilling it all over the counter… apparently I’m not that clever.
So now you’ve got something like this:
Fill the top with whipped cream. Don’t over fill it or you’ll make an even bigger mess on the bench >_<
Decoration time! Sprinkles first…
Then ears out of failed honey comb, you could use shortbread or flakes or anything vaguely pointy.
Use a little bit of melted chocolate and a finger to draw the bunny’s eyes and nose. Mine looks kind of evil…
He’s probably mad because I spilled half of the melted whipped cream all over the counter too >_< This cooking thing is messy business!
Do you guys have special movie night food? We usually just pile as much junk food as possible on to the couch and go nuts 😀 I’m running out of 90’s comedies to watch though, do you guys have any recommendations?
