Holiday Happiness: The BEST Hot Chocolate Recipe

Hot Chocolate


We are taking a little break from wedding planning in Chicago this week to enjoy time with our family. We hope that you have a safe and lovely holiday with your family. We can’t wait for our Chicago weddings in 2015!

The holidays are all about sweets, and the most essential ingredient? Chocolate. I am a chocoholic. I love chocolate in each and every one of its forms: candies, truffles, brownies, cookies, pies, hot fudge, even syrup.  But nothing is as enjoyable during the holiday season as a delicious cup of hot chocolate. I have searched the globe high and low for the best hot chocolate recipe, and this one has Swiss Miss beat, hands down. Your guests are guaranteed to leave your holiday party raving about your insane cooking skills and begging you for this recipe.

Hot Chocolate Crave

1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
6 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla

In a large, heavy bottom sauce pan combine sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips over medium heat. Stir constantly until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.  Add whipping cream, milk, and vanilla, whisking everything together until smooth and completely combined.  Serve warm. Enjoy!

Party Tip: If you are making this for a get-together, keep the mixture in a large crockpot 3-4 hours before serving time, stirring hourly. Include whipped cream, marshmallows, Bailey’s Irish Cream, and other fun toppings for a cute hot chocolate bar!
