    Transform your Milk Choco Pillows into an indulgent treat that would double up as a dessert. With infused cereal milk, double cream and melted dark chocolate, it gives regular hot chocolate a serious upgrade.

  1. Combine the milk and cereal to a small pan and bring to a simmer over a medium heat. Cook for 3 minutes, then remove from the heat and leave to infuse for a further 10 minutes.

  2. Once infused, strain the hot mixture through a sieve into a measuring jug, pressing gently to release the liquid.

  3. Discard the cereal and return the infused milk to the pan. Add the cream and set over a medium heat to bring the mixture up to a gentle simmer.

  4. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate. Leave to stand for 1 minute, then whisk to combine as the chocolate melts.

  5. Return the pan to a low heat to keep warm while you whip a little extra cream until thick and glossy.

  6. Divide the hot chocolate between 2 mugs and spoon over the whipped cream. Crumble over an extra handful of Milk Choco Pillows and dust lightly with cocoa powder before serving.
