This Red Velvet Hot Cocoa recipe is the stuff of dreams. Think your regular hot chocolate with a sumptuous, velvety twist.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate is one of our favorite treats during the holidays. Made with real semi-sweet chocolate chips and a dash of peppermint, this makes the perfect treat for Christmas morning. We usually make to go batch on the night we drive to look at Christmas lights.
Recipe Note: For richest chocolate flavor use 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. My kids prefer the recipe made with just one cup of chocolate chips. For this delicious recipe head over to Number 2 Pencil.

Salted caramel is a wonderfully complex flavor. When combined with hot chocolate, it provides plenty of stimulation for your taste buds. All of this is wrapped in a velvety blanket of milk and heavy cream that is perfect for relaxing away an evening.
Lya received three boxes of cocoa mix from her secret Santa at school. Everyone was so crazy about the salted cocoa mix that we ran out very fast.

The classic sweet and sinful cake batter flavor is full force here, but it doesn’t overpower that rich, satiny white chocolate. After all, this is first and foremost hot chocolate. The cake batter and white chocolate play off one another well with their complementary sweetness, while the chocolate tastes like the icing on top of the cake. It’s smooth and rich, and you can whip it up in minutes. Do late-night fall treats get any better than that?
Life is too short to keep it plain and simple all the time. Some days, you’ve got to go all-out, and churn out a piping hot mugful of the most decadent and indulgent beverage you can dream of, and this is it. Head over to The Smart Cookie Cook to get this delicious recipe!
Raspberry White Hot Chocolate- This beautiful beverage is made with real raspberry puree, white chocolate, and a mix of milk and cream, to produce a rich, comforting drink that tastes like melted berries & cream ice cream.
I love this drink because it’s so different from most hot chocolate recipes. Don’t get me wrong–I love a mug of deep, dark hot cocoa as much as the next chocoholic, but there’s something so fun and refreshing and cheerful about seeing a bright pink drink! And you know the rule—pink drinks have to be topped with whipped cream and sprinkles. Don’t fight it, it’s a necessity. A few fresh raspberries complete the garnish and give these white hot chocolates the perfect touch. Head over to Sugar Hero for this pretty abd yummy recipe.
I melted down some baker's chocolate in the top of a double boiler, whisked in some honey and hot milk, and topped it with a sea salt chocolate whipped cream. (Yep, I put chocolate in the whipped cream, too. And it was AMAZING.) The hot chocolate slowly melted the bottom of the whipped cream island and made the whole drink slightly salty. The melted chocolate added the best thick and velvety texture, and created a richness and intensity of flavor that you just cannot get from using a powdered cocoa base.
The best part is that it takes all of 15 minutes to throw together, and most of that time is spend standing by the mixer while the liquid cream becomes whipped cream. I made them on two occasions this past weekend because they were just that darn good. The recipe below makes two servings of hot chocolate, it is very rich so I kept the portions small (think espresso cup size). But, if you're especially hungry you can feel free to double it and ingest a wonderfully decadent amount of chocolate. Head over to Adventures in Cooking for this recipe.
