Christmas Eve Hot Chocolate

There is something about having hot chocolate on Christmas Eve that has become such a special tradition for us, even if it is nearly 70° in certain parts of the south!

While it is so easy to rip open a pack of Swiss Miss, I love the rich, creamy deliciousness of this homemade hot chocolate.


Christmas Eve Hot Chocolate

1 (14 ounce) can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder

1 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract

1/8 tsp. Kosher Salt

6 1/2 cups water

High Quality Chocolate Chips

Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a sauce pan on the stove top.  Stir in 8 ounces chocolate chips until melted, simmer for 20 minutes on low-medium heat, stirring often to prevent scorching.

Top with whipped cream.

And from our family to yours –

a very merry Christmas!
