Heavenly Hot Chocolate (From Scratch)

Heavenly Hot Chocolate (From Scratch)

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • whipped cream - for topping
  • freshly grated chocolate shavings - for garnish
  • cinnamon - optional
In a sauce pan over high heat, whisk together the milk, heavy cream and sugar. Bring mixture to a near-boil (if it starts to boil, reduce heat slightly).

Add the chocolate chips and whisk until the chocolate is completely melted. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Pour hot chocolate into your favorite mug. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. If desired, a tiny pinch of cinnamon is a perfect final touch.


Amazing hot cocoa completely from scratch. You'll never want to have hot chocolate from a packet again.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank rodgerj for this recipe.

Hey, I tried the recipe for "Heavenly Hot chocolate" and I would recommend using less chocolate chips. If you use that much it's just like super chocolatey pudding. So i would use about 1/4 or 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. But with less of that it's really tasty!!!
