Homemade Hot Chocolate First

 

To create the perfect homemade hot chocolate you’ll need Cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract.

Adding chocolate chips is what gives this perfect recipe it’s creamy authentic chocolate flavor.

  • To start, Place your milk in a saucepan over low heat. Using whole milk is definitely the best choice to make this like liquid chocolate cream but you can use a milk alternative or lower fat milk if you want. It will still turn out fabulous.
  • Whisk in cocoa powder and sugar, and heat until good and warm.
  • Once everything is heated, add chocolate chips, whisking until they melt completely.
  • Add a splash of vanilla extract to add full-bodied flavor,
  • Serve immediately but if you plan to make the marshmallow snowmen, make those first!

Check at the bottom of the post for the exact recipe and amounts for the ingredients.

 

Whisk in cocoa powder and sugar, and heat until warm. Once the milk is warm, add chocolate chips, whisking until they melt into the milk. Add a splash of vanilla extract. Serve immediately, topped with your favorite garnishes: marshmallows, whipped cream, chopped chocolate, crushed candy canes or more.

 

What you’ll need to make these cute snowmen:

  • medium size marshmallows
  • straight small pretzel sticks
  • candy corn
  • toothpicks
  • and melted chocolate

 

How to make: 

Use a pretzel to put the three body parts together including the head, middle and bottom. Just gently stick the pretzel through the marshmallows to hold the snowman together.

After that, melt a bit of chocolate in a small tray. Wait till it cools slightly but not till rehardens.

Once it’s a thickened consistency use a toothpick to draw the features of your snowman on with the toothpick using the melted chocolate.

Then put a bit of chocolate in the center for the nose. Stick a piece of candy corn on and hold it for about half a minute or so while the chocolate hardens. It will act as glue to hold the candy in place.

Make your hot chocolate and drop your snowman on top!

You can also create other things with the chocolate and marshmallows. Get creative and enjoy!
