I find it the perfect après-bike to recover from the physical exertion!

If Venice is out for the time being but hedonism still beckons, put the cadburys away and nip to your nearest Waitrose for a tin or three of this - the hot chocolate lover's chocolate.

Mcvities dark chocolate digestives for me, usually taken in pairs with a cup of tea.

Hmm time to put the kettle on.

I actually have my own recipe for delux hot chocolate.

For a half pint mug, add two heaped teaspoons of Cadbury's drinking chocolate, one teaspoon of Rowntree's cocoa into half a pint of milk made from 50/50 whole milk and condensed milk heated to simmering or 2.5 minutes in the microwave.

That makes for an extra creamy, extra chocolatey delux hot chocolate:-)

Condensed milk - that brings the memories flooding back. As a child I lived on an RAF base in Sri Lanka. There were stacks of tins of condensed milk in the kitchen store in our bungalow, and my brother and I used to snitch a tin and take it somewhere private, so we could eat the lot in peace. In Spain they use it to make a drink called cafe bonbon. A shot of strong coffee poured gently over a layer of condensed milk - delicious!

I remember when I was a kid my Dad taking me into his work on a Saturday morning. They used to make the tea in a big pot with Tea and Condensed milk all put in the pot together and boiling water poured on. It was lovely.
