This recipe is easy, simple, and fast! It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients and taste way better than the powdered hot chocolate (though I still use it when I’m lazy). Perfect for snowy days or cold rainy days! 🙂

  1. Measure 1 1/2 cup of milk (using whole milk will make it much more creamy and thicker). Pour into cooking pot. Put to medium heat.
  2. Measure 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream. Pour into cooking pot.
  3. Stir with whisk (or any utensil) consistently to prevent from burning.
  4. While waiting for that to heat up a bit. You can make whip cream with the left over heaving whipping cream. {There are no measurements to scale on making whip cream. I add as I go.} Put heavy whipping cream in a bowl. Take some powdered sugar add to bowl (less powered sugar then whipping cream or it will be too think and less of a whip). You can mix with the an electric mixer or whisk (it will take much longer for the it be fluffy manually). Mix until fluffy like whip cream!
  5. Make sure you’re watching the milk to make sure it does not burn or boil over (if so lower heat). Put chocolate chips into a safe microwaveable bowl and heat until melted (heat in short increments until desired effect). {You don’t have to melt the chocolate if you don’t want to. You can put it straight into the hot pot of milk and cream, but bigger chunks take a bit more to melt and mix. Also, how much chocolate chip determines how rich you want the hot chocolate!} IMG_6796.jpg
  6. Add chocolate into hot pot. Mix until all the chocolate has melted and milk is warm and creamy. {If you wish to have more than 2 cups. It is very easy just to add more milk and heavy whipping cream as you go along. Remember to add more milk than heavy cream.}      IMG_6799
  7. Put in mug and add whip cream in top of the hot chocolate!
