Red Velvet Hot Cocoa

I've been gone for a while. Forgive me! While you're doing that, check out my new tumblr page, Content{underRated} at:!

I saw this yummy recipe for a Red Velvet Hot Cocoa that I had to share from She Knows Food & Recipes. Now is the perfect weather to sip on deliciousness...

Red velvet hot chocolate

Serves 1


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 teaspoon red gel no taste food coloring
  • Whipping cream
  • Vanilla sugar

Vanilla sugar whipped cream:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar (no vanilla sugar? Add regular sugar and a drop of vanilla extract)


  1. For whipped cream: Add heavy cream and vanilla sugar to a cold metal bowl. Either whip by hand with whisk or with hand-held mixer until soft peaks form.
  2. For hot chocolate: In a small pan, combine milk, chocolate morsels and food coloring. Gently simmer until hot and all the chocolate is melted. I like to use a small whisk to make sure everything is incorporated. Top with freshly whipped cream.
