Hot Chocolate Magic in a Mug
There's a reason that chocolate drinks have been around for at least three thousand years: They're just so darn good. Before sugar was a thing, these beverages were spicy and bitter. Today, hot chocolate is a sweet treat best served warm in a mug by the fire while the snow settles outside.
Whether you're having that cozy night in or you're out on the piste, our collection of hot chocolate recipes will keep you toasty warm.
Hot chocolate flavours
Hot chocolate comes in many varieties, and when armed with chocolate, milk, and a mug, the possibilities are endless! If you're looking for hot chocolate with a twist, check out this Slow Cooker Peppermint Hot Chocolate recipe. Pure Mint & Peppermint Extract gives this a traditional winter mint taste, kind of like having a candy cane in your mug.
For those who crave a slightly more tropical taste to their coca, Toasted Coconut White Hot Chocolate is for you. Here, white chocolate replaces dark, Imitation Coconut Extract delivers that signature coconut flavour, and a sprinkle of toasted coconut on top finishes it off.
For a different type of nutty drink that takes even less time to prepare, try this two-minute Almond Hot Chocolate concoction. Pure Almond Extract and vanilla extract take a humble blend of milk and hot chocolate mix to the next level. Sometimes, the simplest recipes are the best.
Non-dairy hot chocolate
For our non-dairy friends, look no further than a warm cup of Coconut Milk Hot Chocolate. Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk is the not-so-secret ingredient in creating that luxuriously smooth, sippable hot cocoa texture, all the while imparting a subtle coconut flavour that pairs seamlessly with the richness of cocoa.
Coconut milk's mild flavour also complements Pumpkin Pie Spice in this Pumpkin Pie Spiced Hot Chocolate with Coconut Milk recipe. Chocolatey and spiced-so-nice, this mug of fall-forward flavour was made for moments gathered with family and friends while you celebrate the season.
