  1. Melt the cooking chocolate in a small saucepan. Dip the rims of 2 mugs into the melted chocolate and swirl around so that they have a ½cm-1cm thick coating on the outside. Sprinkle with the walnuts and transfer to the fridge for 15 mins to set.

  2. Put the instant cofee and 2 tsp Tesco Finest cocoa powder into a jug and pour over 200ml boiling water, stirring to dissolve. Heat the semi-skimmed milk in bursts in the microwave until steaming, then pour into the jug and divide between the two mugs.

  3. Squirt the dairy spray cream on to each mug, sprinkle with ½ tbsp finely chopped walnut and finish with a grating of dark chocolate to serve.

Tip: No walnuts? Any chopped nuts work well in this recipe – try hazelnuts or almonds. If you don’t fancy nuts, grate over chocolate or try some honeycomb pieces.
