12 C (125 ml) double cream

2 Tbsp (30 ml) sugar

2 Tbsp (30 ml) cream cheese, softened

seeds of ½ vanilla pod

2 12 C (625 ml) full-cream milk

100 g good quality dark chocolate, chopped

4 – 5 drops red food coloring

Start by making the whipped cream cheese topping- blend the double cream, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla seeds with an electric mixer until it thickens.

Place a small saucepan over a medium heat, add the milk and heat slowly until warmed through. Add the chocolate and stir until melted and incorporated. Add a couple of drops of food coloring to give it a rich red colour.

Pour into mugs, top with a generous blob of whipped cream cheese topping and serve immediately.
