The Split Screen is going green.
Having not yet completely lost hope in humanity’s ability to make the world a better place and finding inspiration from Blue Planet 2, the most watched TV programme in 2017, we made a little silent pledge to use less plastic.
We have always offered a 50p discount to anyone who has brought us a reusable mug but we are now teaming up with other cafes in and around Nottinghamshire in the hopes of building up a movement away from disposable cups. Visit http://www.ecocuppa.org.uk to check out all the participating cafes.
Luxury Hot Chocolate.
Spring and the warming sunshine are taking their time this year so we are having to find an alternative heat source. Our hot chocolate sauce is going down a storm and it couldn’t be easier. All you need is good quality cocoa, sugar, salt, vanilla, water and a spare 10 minutes.
Mix 250g unsweetened cocoa with 250g of caster sugar.
Add 250ml of cold water and 1/4 tsp of salt and whisk over a medium heat until boiling stirring constantly.
Allow to boil for 3-4 mins.
Taste and stir in an additional 1/4 tsp of salt of required.
Remove from heat and stir in 1 tbsp of vanilla extract.
Allow to cool before storing in a sterilised airtight container.
Will keep for up to a month.
