Rich, Dark, Creamy Hot Chocolate

[donotprint] hot chocolate and candy canes

This recipe took me by surprise.

I don’t drink chocolate milk.
I don’t enjoy chocolate milk.

I don’t like white chocolate. at. all.

Dark chocolate or go home.

For the past 3 years I’ve seen tons of homemade hot chocolate mix recipes floating around the internet and they’ve always piqued my interest but, they’ve never tempted me enough that I’ve actually wanted to make my own.

UNTIL.

I stumbled across this one

She used the words ‘thick and creamy and super chocolatey‘  right there, she had me, she told me that this hot chocolate wasn’t like the traditional thin, watery, hot chocolate milk that most of us are used to.

This was going to be a rich, decadent, tonguegasmic treat

Something that you don’t just drink, you savor.

Hot chocolate is not something that’s consumed frequently down here.

However, last week — the temperatures finally dipped below the 60 F mark

They dipped into the frigid holy hail this is cold range

That kind of cold means that even Diet Dr Pepper must take a back seat and since I don’t drink coffee (eeeeeeewwwwwww) hot chocolate it must be.

I won’t do packets, especially packets that ask you to mix with water — SERIOUSLY.  just STOP.

So, I pulled her recipe back up.. made a change or two to adapt for my dark chocolate lovin’ soul and —-

y’all

oh. mah. holy. hell.

you’re welcome.

    I sure wish I could be down South because it’s Fre-Freezing here in Utah {teen digits-yikes}; I happened to have all these ingredients & you’ve made me want to try the recipe out the next time I need to warm my tummy :) Thanks for sharing :)

    I can do this one!

    Of course I have NONE of the ingredients. So tomorrow it’ll be the store.

    Aaaaaannd, of course, I don’t have a measuring cup. Or a wisk. That’s that little whippy thing right? Or home made whipped cream.

    But I have a spoon, and my blender isn’t powerful but I do have a “ninja” kitty just in case.

    I can do this. I’m happy. Thank you I. Am. Going. To. Love. This.

      Craig,

      You crack me up.
      Yes, the whisk is the wire wippy thingy ;-)

      You need something that will whip the flakes into a fine powder — if you use your ninja kitty, I ask that you video it because I really, really want to see that.

      :-)
      ENJOY!

    I too refuse packets. I have found ONE mix (in a can) that I LOVE and it’s Stephens Candycane Cocoa. I do half water and half milk and top with whipped cream. It’s decadent and thick and creamy, not watery like the usual mixes.

    This looks super yum!

    Have you ever made whipped hot chocolate? I have a recipe around here somewhere and it’s amazing too… you could probably do the same with this???

    I grew up in South Florida and didn’t drink much hot chocolate as a kid, but my own Middle Tennessee babies are forging memories with snow and hot chocolate. I’m a recent convert to milk instead of water, but am still using mixes. Could be time to step it up.

    Here in MN if it was 60 degrees we’d be making ice cold lemonade to drink! :) Our high temps will be in the single digits this week. lows below zero. So your hot chocolate recipe will be perfect for us here!

  8. says

    We are so loving the little dip in TX temps this week. I even had to dig out my gloves to walk the dog this morning. I love your cocoa recipe and think I have some white chocolate chips that didn’t quite make into the holiday baking so as our last day of vacation tomorrow it’s Hot Chocolate! Happy New Year!
