Have you heard of freakshakes? It’s a wonderfully over-the-top combination of milkshake and dessert that originated in Australia but is currently taking the Uk by (sweet) storm. Anything goes when it comes to topping freakshakes – they are meant to be visually striking as well as an extremely indulgent. Here I have freaked (pimped?) out hot chocolate instead seeing as it is winter and you might prefer your drink hot rather than cold.

 

Prepare your jar or glass and toppings before the hot chocolate so that it is ready to be topped while still warm. I have suggested some toppings below but they are mere suggestions – you can simply let your imagination run wild!

Here's what you'll need...

  • 240ml whole or semi skimmed milk
  • 150ml evaporated milk (1 small can)
  • 1-2 tbsp chocolate spread (Nutella) plus extra for the glass
  • 1 tbsp chocolate liqueur (if you liked it spiked!)
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extracthot_chocolate_ingredients

    Fill a small shallow plate with sprinkles of your choice and tip the jar in it so that the sprinkles stick to the rim.

    Heat gently, whisking constantly, until the ingredients are well mixed and hot chocolate is smooth. Be careful not to bring to the boil.

    Carefully fill the glass with the hot chocolate and add whipped cream on top. Thread the cookies and mini donuts over straws and add. Use cocktail sticks to balance the other toppings such as brownies and chocolate truffles. Add more sprinkles and serve immediately.
