If one used a vegan chocolate, this drink would be vegan! I decided to go with milk chocolate though, since I prefer that flavor, as opposed to the darker chocolates. I just cooked everything together in a little pan on the stove-top, instead of melting my chocolate first like the original recipe states.

1. Combine all ingredients, except the golden syrup, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk frequently until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. If not sweet enough, add a squirt of Lyle's Golden syrup, agave, or honey to taste.
