How To Make The Perfect Hot Chocolate In 5 Minutes

It's the season of cold nights and warms drinks! A cup of creamy hot chocolate is a must have at the end of a long tiring day, just as you get settled in your bed. And of course we all want a quick fix, so here's our take on how to make the perfect cup of hot chocolate within 5 minutes!

Warm a cup of milk on the stove on a low flame, but don't let it boil.

Instead of adding cocoa, this recipe simply requires a bar of your favourite chocolate! Personally we love the Cadbury Bubbly as its extra soft and creamy, but any other chocolate will work just as well! After all, there are no restrictions when it comes to chocolate!

So add a medium sized bar of your chocolate of preference, plus a pinch of salt to enhance the flavour. Keep stirring constantly for 1 minute.

Remove from the heat, add half a teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon for an extra delicious touch!
Pour in a mug and you have your hot chocolate ready to serve in just 5 minutes!

    Stay Safe From Winter Frizz!

    What's the best part about winter you ask? The chance to flaunt your gorgeous hair without the fear of a meltdown of course! But winter too brings some major problems for us fashionistas, the main one being-FRIZZ! Just follow some simple tips to avoid static hair this season!

    1. Oil and Condition!

    Hot oils and deep conditioning treatments are necessary all year round! They provide your hair with proper hydration, since lack of moisture is the number one reason for static hair!

    2. Styling Products


    Since hair gets extra dry this season, hence leaving it frizzy, styling products are a must have for winters! See what suits your hair type the best, from serums to hair gels, the options are endless! While the use of these products during the summer may give off a slightly oily look, when used this season your hair will look well nourished and less frizzy too!

    3. Hair-dos

    Stick with half tied hair, as it's the go to trend this season anyway! It can be a half braid or the much talked about man-bun! Leaving your hair half up makes it easier to manage and control while giving off a sophisticated look.

    4. Curl It!

    Dead straight hair is so yesterday anyway, so bring out those curling tongs and add volume to your hair! When waved or curled, your hair is less prone to get static as opposed to straightened hair.
