Hot Milo recipes - I need help

I have cold milo down pat. The joining of cold full cream milk and copius amount of milo is a beautiful thing.

But hot milo has me stumped. For years I've been struggling. The argument surrounding the adding of sugar is timeless. I've heard rumours of people adding sweetened condensed milk....this sounds pretty appealing. Boiling water with a bit of milk, or just hot milk? How much milo?

Basically, what do you do, because I'm cold and want a good hot milo.

Lots of milo and boiling water. Milk is optional.

goingblank  said about 3 years ago:

Put a couple of spoonfuls of Milo in a mug. Boil a really small amount of water and use that to dissolve the Milo. Heat milk to drinking temperature, put that in and stir.

you've got a first world problem.

thisispants  said about 3 years ago:

Good tip in dissolving the milo.

First world problem? Sure.

2-4 teaspoons of milo depending on taste, 2/3 water, 1/3 cold milly. What's hard about that????

have to have milk. who the fuck has milo without milk? crazies.

You seem to be getting your Milo and your hot chocolate confused there buddy.

IronMic  said about 3 years ago:

nah it works, try it.

Oscarwilde  said about 3 years ago:

Two ways

1 is the normal way..

Lots of Milo, half a tea spoon of sugar, 1/4 boiling water or more depending on consistency/heat you prefer/ want... top with milk stir.

Old skool way

Lots of Milo sugar to taste say half a tea, heat milk in pot until it gets a film skim it off and pour it in fill cup. This is decadent and dangerous work.

Oscarwilde  said about 3 years ago:

Of course Milo is for chumps..

Try old skool recipe with bourneville need to use more sugar

If that is too rich cadburys drinking chocolate is the way to go.

Recipe old skool

Milo plus milo powder = Milo Dinosaur
Milo Dinosaur plus ice cream = Milo Godzilla

rigid  said about 3 years ago:

Goingblank's recipe is the one I use. I've not really experimented because I've never needed to, although adding a scoop of ice cream sounds like a fine idea.

ghoti-max  said about 3 years ago:

I used to have this girlfriend who made this drink which was milo, nutella, ice cream and milk shaken up in a cocktail shaker. It was mind blowing. When we broke up I shed tears only for that drink.

make it yourself? know all the ingredients

NotMorrissey  said about 3 years ago:

All milk. Heat in microwave.

Add, like, 4 heaped teaspoons of Milo.

Add 2 sugars.

Maybe some vanilla essence if I'm feeling raunchy.

Ghoti, you should have never let that girl go

Kez  said about 3 years ago:

Nothing worse tasting than overcooked milk - ya gotta save it just before it boils or it'll easily turn foul. This is from someone who grew up with a mother's 'milk saucepan' a regular part of the sparing-but-functional kitchen accoutrements,

I say stuff that. Go to Spain and get a carton of hot chocolate from a supermarket and microwave yourself a big cup of that rich, thick, liquid-velvet-on-your-tongue chocolaty heaven. Casa Iberica in Johnson St won't do, though they mean well you'll be handed an 8-dollar block of cooking chocolate instead and you won't have the heart to say no that's not it and you'll buy it and eat it like normal chocolate and although it's nice you'll break a tooth on it because it's so hard and all you wanted was a carton of microwave hot chocolate like you had in Spain...
