pink cocoa

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share a sweet recipe that feels oh-so-appropriate for this time of year – pink hot cocoa!

After date night, it’s nice to have a little something to end the night with. Most times this is another glass of red wine for me, but Christian would definitely pick sugar over alcohol, so that’s inspired this idea.  I’m not going to like… I think I’m going to make all my hot chocolate pink from now on. It’s just real cute!

Pink Hot Cocoa Recipe (for two):

3 cups almond milk

1 cup white chocolate chips

1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 to 1 teaspoon red food coloring

Whipped Cream, Marshmallows, sprinkles for topping


Combine the milk and chocolate chips in a saucepan.  Whisk until chocolate chips are completely melted. Stir in the vanilla extract and then add a small drop of food coloring, building until you find your desired shade of pink! Pour into mugs, load with toppings and don’t worry if some spills out – it adds to the fun (but that’s why a saucer isn’t a bad idea)!

  1. I just got into hot chocolate again and even bought a new mug to put it in but now that I see this and a pink version I might have to take the idea and always have pink hot chocolate. Thanks for this!
