4 Ingredient Whipped Hot Chocolate

4 Ingredient Whipped Hot Chocolate

Usually by now, Upstate New York would be pretty chilly, but instead we have been having 70 degree weather.

You heard me right, NEW YORK, not Florida.

I am in full Holiday Spirit mode but this weather is putting a bit of a damper on it because I can’t enjoy warm drinks and soups. I decided to make this ‘not so hot’ hot chocolate that is only 4 ingredients and quick to make.

4 ingredient whipped hot chocolate has the smooth velvety feeling with rich chocolate flavor. It is also versatile so you can enjoy this drink warm even when the weather does get cooler.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs hot chocolate mix
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 8 oz milk of your choice
  • chocolate syrup
  • marshmallows (optional)

Directions

  1. Whip together hot chocolate mix and heavy whipping cream. Use a mixer or frother.
  2. Add chocolate syrup to milk and mix. Use as much syrup as you want for sweetness preference.
  3. Spoon whipped chocolate on top of chocolate milk and garnish with marshmallows.
  4. For a warm drink, heat chocolate milk in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and then tip with whipped chocolate.
  5. This also tastes great when whipped chocolate is topped on your morning coffee.

Delicious Red Wine Hot Chocolate To Warm You Up!

I was looking for something warm while trick or treating this year but also needed something to keep up with the kids!

I decided to make this warm and delicious red wine hot chocolate on a whim and it was a hit!

The red wine mixed perfectly with silky chocolate and creamy milk. It stayed warm all day in the slow cooker and every taste was delectable. This will definitely be a hit all holiday season long!

The ingredients are easy and simple, here is what you need:

  • 6 cups of milk
  • 1 bag of semi chocolate chocolate chips
  • 1 bottle of red wine
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon or 2 sprays of Spray Gourmet cinnamon.

Mix all the ingredients into slow cooker and cook on high for 1 hour. Stir in between to keep the chocolate chips mixed evenly and not sink to the bottom.

Keep on low setting throughout the day.

This is optional but top with large marshmallows or whipped cream for and extra creamy drink!

As you start to take your holiday decor out, before sure to have this drink on hand to keep your spirits up! Enjoy!
