No Sinterklaas party without hot chocolate, at snazzie's. And have we now found a nice one, Cioccolata Calda from Italy! This chocolate milk is not for the youngest mini-monsters, it is too rich. For them we pour the lovely Tony's chocolate milk. But for the older mini and maxi monsters - the chocolate lovers - is this recipe the best!

How to make Cioccolata Calda
