Hot Cocoa Surprise… A Yummy Recipe for a Never Ending Winter


It has been colder than ever this year and my kids have been all about hot cocoa to warm them up!  I figured it would be nice to mix things up a little bit and see what kind of delicious drinks we could make them so they weren’t always drinking the same ‘ol thing and they LOVE this recipe that we came up with!

Hot Cocoa Surprise

Take 8 ounces milk heated and add the following:

  • 2 Tablespoons hot cocoa mix (we aren’t picky..we used the cheap stuff)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir well.

Next, top with:

  • Whipped Marshmallow cream
  • Chocolate chips
  • cocoa powder

Done, that’s all you have to do to have a delicious, gourmet hot chocolate!
