Fight off winter’s chill with a warm, cozy mug of this Triple Chocolate Hot Cocoa recipe. A rich drink made with chocolate milk, cocoa mix, and melted dark chocolate.
Hey folks, can you believe we are full on into winter? I just relocated to Columbus, Ohio from sunny Arizona with my husband Paul, and let me tell you, it is quite the temperature difference. Warm days full of Skinny Pina Coladas are over for a few months, so I am focusing on drinks that will warm you up from the inside out.
Triple Chocolate Hot Cocoa Recipe
This Triple Chocolate Hot Cocoa Recipe is not only great for a family-oriented, after-school treat, it is also fun for the adults-only crowd with the addition of a little chocolate liqueur or a splash of chocolate vodka. Serve it with a warm cookie or an artisanal biscotti for dunking.
My husband and I are staying in a hotel for the first month in our new city, so my culinary digs are limited right now. We have a small kitchenette to cook our meals in, which means I am focusing on recipes that can be easily made on-the-go.
Our first night in the room I was craving something hot, sweet, and mostly homemade. We brought a few boxes of dry goods from Arizona, including my favorite cocoa mix, but sometimes you need to jazz it up just a bit. I used chocolate milk from the corner store and added melted dark chocolate too. You want it to be rich and creamy, but not too sweet.
Mini marshmallows are a fun addition to this drink too. You can also top it with whipped cream, sprinkles, or anything else that strikes your fancy. This is also a tasty recipe when used to create a hot cocoa bar so family and friends are able to customize their add-ins.
