Holly Jolly Hot Chocolate Recipes

Sunday, December 06, 2015

Hello Everyone! With winter starting, you know there's one thing on our minds. Hot Chocolate. Yes, that's right. There's nothing better than making yourself a warm chocolate drink with melting marshmallows and fresh whipped cream.  We make ourselves all kinds of hot chocolate, from the pre-packaged mixes to the start-from-scratch on the stove with good quality dark chocolate kind. So here's a few of our favorite (and insanely delicious) Hot Chocolate recipes!

Classic Homemade Spiced Hot Chocolate

  • Milk
  • Semisweet Chocolate Chips or any other good quality dark chocolate
  • Vanilla
  • Cinnamon
  • Marshmallows (to add on top if you wish)
  • Homemade or store bought whipped cream
Place the milk and chocolate chips on the stove to melt together. Also add in the vanilla cinnamon. You will have to continuously stir to make sure the chocolate doesn't burn. All the ingredients will slowly combine. You should get a thick, frothy, dark brown liquid goodness. Take it off the stove when everything is well combined and well-mixed throughout. These flavors with the real chocolate will make for a rich and sweet drink that is simply irresistible! Once you pour it into your favorite mug, add marshmallows and your whipped cream. If you want to make homemade whipped cream, just whip up some heavy whipping cream with sugar and vanilla. It turns out very well!

Peppermint Hot Chocolate


  • Milk
  • Hot chocolate mix (or you can use the recipe above without the spices)
  • Peppermint syrup or extract
  • Crushed up Candy Canes
  • Peppermint Marshmallows
  • Whipped cream
Fill up a mug with milk and put it in the microwave/heat it up until it is hot. Once you take it out, put a few spoons of your hot chocolate mix and some of your peppermint flavoring (syrup or extract) into the milk and stir until everything is well combined. If you use peppermint extract, you will only need a tiny drop of flavoring in your drink. However, we use peppermint syrup and the flavor is not as strong, so you can afford to add a bit more. After that, your drink is ready for some garnish like whipped cream, crushed up candy canes, or even some peppermint marshmallows. This drink is so delicious and perfect for the winter!

Eggnog Hot Chocolate


  • Milk 
  • Hot chocolate mix
  • Eggnog
  • Any other toppings
Make the hot chocolate by heating up milk and stirring in your choice of hot chocolate mix. Then, add in a splash of eggnog. You can add as much or as little as you want. Eggnog is very rich and sweet, and happens to be the perfect combo with some chocolate. At least that's what we think! Then, you can put whatever else in your drink or on top for some extra flare! 

These are some of our favorite three hot chocolate recipes. They are super simple to make and require almost no time and very few ingredients. Hot chocolate is a great drink to customize. Try something new with your favorite drink this winter!
