ULTIMATE Hot Chocolate

ULTIMATE Hot Chocolate Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

We unexpectedly picked up 6 inches of snow over the last few hours, so I’m hunkering down inside with my heat blanket and a steaming cup of the richest hot chocolate around.

Topped with more than just marshmallows, this hot cocoa is stick-to-your-ribs thick and will certainly keep you warm from the inside out.

  1. In a pot over medium high heat, whisk together the milk and evaporated milk. Stir in the salt, vanilla and cornstarch. Let come to a simmer, whisking occasionally.
  2. When the milk is just starting to steam, add the chocolate chips and unsweetened cocoa powder. Stir until the chocolate chips are melted. Scrape the bottom to make sure the melted chocolate isn't sticking.
  3. Bring the chocolate mixture to just below a rolling boil and then remove from the heat. Cool to drinking temperature - about 10 minutes.
  4. While the cocoa cools, garnish your mug with chocolate syrup and rice crispie skewers. Ladle the hot cocoa into the mug and top with marshmallows, whipped cream and crushed Oreos. Stay warm and enjoy!
