11 Hot Chocolate Recipes That Will Knock Your Socks Off!!

Looking for a unique spin to put on your hot chocolate? Yes, it’s delicious, and most of us just use the little pre-made package that takes about 30 seconds to heat up…but there is so much more to hot chocolate that we all should try!

1. Butterbeer Hot Chocolate (Butterscotch)


Topped with heavy cream (and magical sugar star shapes!) and mini marshmallows, this butterscotch hot chocolate has hints of vanilla and butter that give it a creamy and comforting flavor that can’t be beat!

2. Nutella Hot Chocolate


Who doesn’t love the creamy and delicious addition of Nutella to just about everything? Hazelnut flavored anything has always been a favorite of mine, and now there is a way to incorporate it into hot chocolate! Yes, please! This is a simple recipe that will keep you warm all night long! Milk, Nutella (or any hazelnut spread), cocoa powder, and sweetener make this the easiest recipe ever!

3. Peppermint White Hot Chocolate


A savory hot white chocolate is the perfect ending (okay, fine, beginning, middle, and ending) to any chilly day, but I’ve been known to give in on a warm summer afternoon because I can’t resist this amazing recipe! Peppermint, white chocolate, vanilla…what could go wrong?! I always top this drink off with a bit of whipped cream and a single peppermint. It’s just too good!

4. Mexican Hot Chocolate


Have you had the opportunity to taste a Mexican hot chocolate in your lifetime? If not, this is your chance to see why it’s a favorite in so many households! A comforting combination of cinnamon and nutmeg make this cup of hot chocolate one that you will not soon forget! Plus, just look at it! It’s too cute!

5. S’Mores Hot Chocolate11.27d

Do you love a good s’more? Crunchy graham crackers, melted chocolate, and gooey marshmallows are a hard thing to top on a brisk evening, but this cup of hot chocolate comes surprisingly close! Cocoa powder, milk, chocolate syrup, graham crackers, and marshmallows make this comforting drink a new family favorite!

6. Frozen Hot Chocolate


Yes, hot chocolate is delicious! But sometimes the weather is warm when we get that familiar craving! This recipe is simple and can instantly turn your favorite hot chocolate recipe into a chilly, frozen treat! As long as you have ice cubes and a blender, this can be sitting on your desk in just a few minutes! Doesn’t look amazing?

7. Red Wine Hot Chocolate


This recipe combines most people’s two favorite things: chocolate and wine. This is definitely a drink meant for sipping as it is very rich and full of flavor! Milk, wine, chocolate, and…well, that’s all you need! You could add whipped cream if you felt the urge, but this is perfect on its own! Adding cinnamon sticks might be a good idea, too if you like an extra dimension to your hot chocolate!

8. Copycat Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate


This recipe was born out of necessity! If you live too far from a Starbucks to justify traveling over 30 minutes to grab this tasty treat (like me), then a copycat recipe is born to help curb those cravings! A lot of ingredients go into this masterpiece, but it is definitely worth it! Milk, sugar, cocoa, vanilla, sea salt, hazelnut syrup, and caramel sauce are a must, and you can add chocolate and whipped cream if you’re feeling particularly adventurous! I can smell this already!

9. Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate


Heavy cream, milk, white chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin spice, and whipped cream? I ask you, how can you go wrong with ingredients like these?! You can ditch the pre-made hot chocolate packages because this is just delicious!

10. Pink Velvet Hot Chocolate


What a fun spin on a classic! Milk, white chocolate sauce, vanilla, cream cheese whipped cream, and delicious candy sprinkles! It’s almost like a cupcake in a cup! The red tint is from food coloring, but I think it makes a fantastic presentation. Yum!

11. RumChata Hot Cocoa


This recipe is also a fun gift to give out for practically any occasion! Milk, cocoa, sugar, coffee creamer, and a little bit of “fun!”

Try a few of these out the next time you get the urge for a nice cup of hot cocoa – who knows, you may discover a new favorite!
