The creaminess of the chocolate demands a bit of crunch. Make our cranberry biscotti: nobody will see if you dunk them into the chocolate while you eat!
Roughly chop chocolate.
Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add star anise, cloves, and chopped chocolate and stir gently until dissolved. Leave to simmer for approx. 5 – 10 min. Stir occasionally.
In the meantime, beat cream in a measuring cup using a hand mixer with beaters until stiff.
Remove star anise and cloves from hot chocolate. Pour into cups and top off with a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings and enjoy!
