Whipped Hot Chocolate

It wouldn’t be the year of Dalgona Coffee without applying the same technique to hot chocolate for the holidays, right? Fortunately, the hot chocolate version has less room for error and I got it right the first time. Or maybe it’s all the practice I got with Dalgona, and to remain calm if it doesn’t feel like the coffee mixture is getting “whippy” after a long time of mixing. I like this version of hot chocolate because the whipped texture is a nice sub for marshmallows.

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup of hot chocolate mix (get plain mix, not the ones with dehydrated marshmallows unless you want to pick them out)
  • 2 tbsp of white granulated sugar
  • 2 cups of milk of your choice
  • 1/2 cup of whipping cream
Instructions

In a medium mixing bowl, pour in the hot chocolate mix and sugar. Use a whisk to combine.

In a small saucepan, heat up your milk on low.

Add the whipping cream into the hot chocolate and sugar mixture and blend on medium speed with a hand mixer. Blend until the mixture becomes creamy and forms peaks. This should take about 5 – 7 minutes.

Pour your hot milk into a heat-safe glass or mug. Spoon the hot chocolate mixture on top. Take your photo for the gram, then mix the hot chocolate into the milk and enjoy.

The next time I make this, I will also sprinkle some cinnamon on top. πŸ™‚
