Hot Chocolate Part 2

I got to thinking about all the ways you can modify hot chocolate and personalize it. I decided to list all the different add in ideas that I have come across.

Grown Up Versions: Add in Kahlua, Vanilla Vodka, or Irish Cream

Top it: Roasted marshmallow, flavored whip cream, any type of sprinkles

Add extracts: ½ teaspoon of maple, orange, or almond after you remove the cocoa from the heat

Spice it up: with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, chili powder or pumpkin pie spice to the cocoa powder

Add in some coffee to make a lovely mocha!

Mix ins:


Butterscotch Chips


Chocolate shavings

Creamy Peanut Butter or Nutella

Mix in crushed candy: peanut butter cups, Butterfinger, toffee, Red hots, peppermints

Marshmallow Creme

Ice cream

Flavored syrups

Fun Stir Sticks:

Candy Cane

Cinnamon Stick

Chocolate coated spoons

How do you do your hot chocolate? I'm a sucker for all things chocolate and peppermint. You could make this for a holiday party and have a hot chocolate bar.

  1. Yum yum yum! I don't really do anything fancy with my hot chocolate....and haven't had hot chocolate in at least a year. But these ideas sound luscious.
