Notes

  • Half & half could be used in place of milk and cream. Using a blend of the two as opposed to just milk adds extra creaminess to the drink. I make hot chocolate with heavy cream so this seems like a natural choice for this recipe as well.
  • Chocolate milk could be used in place of the milk and chocolate syrup.
  • Regular granulated sugar could be used in place of powdered sugar but I find powdered mixes better.
  • You can add 1/4 to 3/4 cup of baileys or your favorite chocolate liqueur into this recipe. It may require more ice and will likely yield an extra drink!
  • You can use different flavors of hot cocoa mix to change the flavor of the drink! Try mint, caramel, and more!
