Ohmygoodness, this sounds awesome! I’m definitely a sucker for chocolate!
Mmmm…hot chocolate, my favorite!! Thanks for the great recipe. It seems so easy too!
I have had Starbucks before, but it seemed soooo expensive! Now I can make it for much, MUCH less. Thanks!
i just made the hot chocolate, it’s really yummy! i will be using this from now on!
Thank you so much for this recipe. I have been resorting to chocolate syrup in hot milk for I don’t know how many years. This sounds so much better, and a lot tastier. Thank you for the recipe.
I will have to try this.
Two words YUM-MO!
Dd and I split a Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate while on the road yesterday. Wow! It was good! I’ve never had salted caramel anything before, can you think how to kick your recipe up like that? Just swirl some caramel around the cup and sprinkle coarse salt and raw sugar on top? I may have to experiment!

This hot chocolate will be a BIG hit around my house (it’s Alaska- when they go outside to play, they come back in as frozen posicles)!
BTW, great redesign; I especially love the kids’ graphics along the top!

We’ll definitely be giving this one a try around here- I’ve been in search of an easy, delicious hot cocoa recipe. Copy-cats are the best! 🙂
Amy @ Finer Things says
Looks familiar. 😉 This is great for a smaller recipe, though. We don’t often drink all of what I make with 6 cups of milk.
Sounds wonderful! I’ll have to try this. We drink a lot of hot chocolate, especially during the winter:)
I usually use 1/2 cup of french vanilla creamer along with a cup of milk (and in place of vanilla extract). It’s a way to use some of the creamer I get when they’re cheap @ Harris Teeter and since no one else drink’s coffee, I have to find things to put it in besides just my coffee so it doesn’t go to waste. I also mix some in oatmeal for breakfast as well!!

FV Creamer in HC would be yummy!
it was delicious, sprinkle a little extra cocoa and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon!
I just tried this recipe last night…I added more milk because it was way too sweet…but it turned out fantastic! wow. I will be making this more often with the winter sticking around.

Maybe you could try the Torani salted caramel syrup for salted caramel. You should find it in the coffee aisle.
