Hot Chocolate Recipe

Hot Chocolate Drinks

Hot chocolate on a cold winters night is the ultimate in comfort foods. Children of all ages love hot chocolate (as I'm writing this page my 6 year old is asking for some as bed time snack!) with or without marshmallows. This recipe for hot chocolate is rich, creamy and goes well with cookies or cake.

For the adults try adding a shot of Bailey's Irish Creame, White Chocolate Creame liquor or Kaluha to your hot cocoa. For kids of all ages, nothing beats a nice big dollop of fresh whipped cream on top of your steaming hot cocoa.

Homemade Hot Chocolate Drink Recipe

For each cup of hot chocolate you will need:

  • 1 ounces Semi Sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • Whipped cream or marshmallows for topping
Place the half and half, milk sugar and chocolate in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat stirring constantly until chocolate is fully melted.

pour into tall mug and top with whipped cream or marshmallows. Dust with fresh grated nutmeg or cinamon for garnish if desired.
