Super Delicious Hot Chocolate

I LOVE Hot Chocolate. I love any chocolate, but is there really anything better on a cold night that super rich, hot, creamy, whipped creamy hot chocolate? Not in my world! I don’t make this kind very often, because it is very rich. But, when I need that pick me up, I whip up a batch. It’s super simple to make, and very yummy. I always keep the ingredients on hand…just in case! I made a batch of this for our youth group kids…now I’m their favorite.

Let’s get started….


 You take 2 cups of milk and put it in a saucepan with one can of sweetened condensed milk. Add in 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa.
Stir it over medium heat.


You’re going to need to really…stir…this sucker. A lot. I recommend a whisk. But, if you have misplaced yours like I did, use a fork. And stir, stir, stir.


Make sure you get all the lumps out, and heat it through. Until it’s the perfect drinking temperature.


Remove it from the heat, and add in 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, or go crazy and use peppermint extract. Whatever your preference, I won’t judge! Then use a ladle to put it in some mugs, or cups, or just drink it straight from the pot.


Then dollop some whipped cream on top, a little or a lot. You don’t have to be fancy about it. It’s still going to be good…rich…creamy hot chocolate.
