How’s winter going where you live?! Are you embracing the cold temps? Wow, it’s sure been cold here. Like really cold. So cold that I don’t even want to go out much at all.
I will say, however that I’m embracing winter with my hot chocolate consumption. 😉 Because that’s what you’re suppose to do right?
Here’s a great recipe for the most creamy hot chocolate with my new favorite quick tip: Cool Whip hot chocolate toppers.
I have had this pin pinned on Pinterest for a long time now, and I had to test it out for myself, and you know what?! It’s so great! I’ve only attempted homemade marshmallows once, and it didn’t work out so great, so I was thrilled to try out frozen cool whip instead. It’s the wow factor without all the work.
Just spread some cool whip on a quarter sized pan lined with tin foil and freeze for an hour or so.
Take your little cookie cutter, press down and pull out. I used the smallest snowflake from this set of snowflake cookie cutters. I bought these cookie cutters when I first attempted homemade marshmallows via Martha. This little cool whip trick is perfect for something like this because you can spend more time on the actual hot chocolate making.
Here’s the recipe:
Creamy Hot Chocolate recipe
6 cups of milk
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14oz.)
2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
Melt chocolate chips over a double boiler (a.k.a. a glass bowl over a smaller pot of boiling water), stir until completely melted. Add the melted chocolate chips to all the other ingredients in a big stainless steel pot. Warm and stir over low- medium heat until all the chocolate chips are incorporated. Serves 8-10. Top with your cool whip snowflakes and embrace winter. !!
