Holiday Hot Cocoa!



Tis’ the season for all things snowflakes,  gingerbread men, and Hot Cocoa! 😉 After trying a million and one hot chocolate recipes and not finding one that hit that chocolatey goodness spot, I created my own recipe. So, today I am sharing my top secret Holiday Hot Cocoa recipe with y’all! It has been dubbed ” Christmas in a cup” by a sister and it a perfect Hot Cocoa fit for you! ♥

Serves 2 large mugs!


  • 2 cups milk (I use whole milk!!)
  • 2 tbs heavy cream
  • 2 tbs sugar(I used raw but you can use regular white or even pure maple syrup!)
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate  chips
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Dash salt
  • Dash  or two 😉 of nutmeg


  1.  in heavy sauce pan, whisk together 1/2 cup milk with raw sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt over medium high heat until chocolate chips and cocoa are dissolved. Whisk continually during this step!
  2. Slowly whisk in remaining milk and heavy cream. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir frequently until hot. Add vanilla and whisk for 30 second!
  3. Pour into your favorite mug and ENJOY!!
