Make Ahead Quick Hot Chocolate

Make Ahead Real Hot Chocolate





Yield 4-6 cups

This recipe for Make Ahead Real Hot Chocolate skips the constant stirring over a hot pot on the stove and gives you thick, creamy, intensely flavored hot chocolate in just a couple of minutes!



  1. Empty the bag of chocolate chips into a microwave safe mixing bowl. Add the cream and vanilla and microwave for about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes (stirring every 30 seconds) until the mixture has blended together.
  2. Chill for 2 hours, or until the mixture sets up and becomes solid.
  3. Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, create balls about 2 inches in diameter (about 3 tablespoons each) and wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Place several in a large zip-lock bag. The chocolate will keep in the fridge for a week or freezer for up to 2 months.
