Pooh's Honey Oat Quick Bread
Fruited Hunny

Honey Hot Chocolate for a Very Blustrous Day

This recipe was inspired by the books of A.A. Milne, including Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. To learn more about the books and see the rest of our Pooh activities, click here.



This hot chocolate is about as good as you can get with out being loaded with cream and chocolate, and infinitely better than something out of a packet! It's quicker too: you can whip it up in about 5 minutes, and can be easily adapted to make several servings.

Serve with a slice of Honey-Oat Bread topped with Fruited Honey, and you have a snack that would satisfy any hungry bear (especially Winnie the Pooh)!
