If you don’t have thermometer, you know you can stop steaming when you can’t hold the jug comfortably – keep a hand cupped around milk jug while steaming.
If you don’t have espresso machine, use small pan on the hob, use a whisk or a spoon to stir the milk constantly and melt the chocolate in a microwave.
