12 Days of Christmas: Day 9 - Hot Chocolate Recipe

This morning, I treated Elijah to his very first cup of hot chocolate made from scratch. It was delicious and filling enough to be called breakfast, but somehow he also managed to eat a waffle.

Here's my recipe for 1 (large) serving. I can usually only drink half of one though as it is very rich.

  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (semi-sweet works well, too...or maybe mint chocolate, yum!)
  • pinch of salt
  • dribble of vanilla extract
  • mini marshmallows
  • Heat the milk and cream together over medium heat until hot, but not boiling.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and stir until melted.
  • Take off the heat and add in salt and vanilla. Stir to combine.
  • Pour into mugs and add mini marshmallows.
  • Enjoy!
Last weekend before Christmas - are you ready?
