Dangerously Delicious Whipped Hot Chocolate Recipe
I MUST WARN YOU: once you learn the secrets of making this, you may become extremely addicted to this and feel the need to make this on a daily basis, because it's so stinkin' delicious!
You will also become and instant "hot chocolate hit" because people will also fall in love with your mugs full of perhaps, the best hot chocolate anyone has ever had!
* I can also whip up a batch of this wayyyy too fast, because knowing that, makes it even more dangerous. In a mere commercial break, I can whip up a batch of this for all the little lovies in my house and myself!
I couldn't decide, pick any picture you want, if you're going to pin it to pinterest, #whyamIsoindecisive
SERVING SIZE: 2 BIG adult size mugs or 3 little mug fulls and 2 regular mugs full
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 cups milk
1 tbs vanilla extract
1/4 sweet ground cocoa (I used Ghirardelli)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Place a mixing bowl in the freezer. (You'll get it out in a sec for the whipped cream. Just trust me, it helps the whipped cream mix beautifully!)
In a pot, pour milk, vanilla extract and sweet ground cocoa, turn heat to medium and whisk all ingredients together until smooth and chocolatey. Turn temperature down to low and let simmer.
Now go get your bowl from the freezer and pour in the heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and you can either put the powdered sugar in after you whipped the heavy whipping cream, but I like to put it in first, I think it gives it a different texture, but I could be crazy, it's just how I do it!
You can use your kitchen aid, hand mixer or I like to whisk it by hand, because I like to think the calories I burn hand-mixing it, make me not feel so bad about the calories in the drink! ha ha ha
Whip, whisk, beat it until it looks like whippy, clouds of deliciousness. Then turn your stove off. Pour the hot chocolate into mugs, about 1/2 to 3/4 full. Then spoon in big heaps of the whipped cream. I take the whisk and slowly whisk the hot chocolate and whipped cream until all smooth, thick and rich.
Then I add another dollop of whipped cream on top! My kids love it because they say it helps cool the hot chocolate down too!
Then prepare your taste buds, by telling them not to explode with amazement. And prepare to make a second batch! ha ha ha ha
And if you want to watch me pretend I have a cooking show on the Food Network... watch this video and I show you how I roll in my kitchen and make my yummy Whipped Hot Chocolate:
*side note: my Santa mugs and cups I got at an antique store and my gingerbread man mugs, I got at Michae's crafts.
