  • Yield: 4 cups
Doubly Delicious Hot Chocolate With Real Whipped Cream


  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Real Whipped Cream


  • Place the water, cocoa, and sugar in a saucepan and whisk until smooth.
  • Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Make sure your wooden spoon stirs the entire surface of the saucepan bottom, otherwise the cocoa will clump and your hot chocolate will not be smooth.
  • Add the milk, cream, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract to the saucepan, stirring constantly until the chocolate chips have melted and the hot chocolate is smooth and well blended, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and ladle into mugs, garnishing each with 1/4 cup of the Real Whipped Cream.
