How to Make TikTok Whipped Hot Chocolate
If y'alll thought the #dalgonacoffee trend was over, you haven't seen anything yet! This was apparently made "famous" on TikTok but I stumbled across a whipped hot chocolate recipe on Pinterest. I knew it was something we had to try!
The recipe I saw used a packet of hot cocoa mix, which I'm sure works really well. I used Hershey's cocoa powder, sugar, and heavy cream. And WOW. It's pretty much the best drink ever. Much like its whipped coffee cousin, whipped hot chocolate is velvety smooth, rich, and incredibly delicious.

It's pretty easy to make. The "whipped" part is pretty much chocolate whipped cream. But in case you are unsure, here are a few tips to make your life easier:
Use cocoa powder. The unsweetened powder used to make brownies. If you use hot cocoa mix instead of cocoa powder, leave out the sugar.
Make it's heavy whipping cream. Anything with a lower fat content won't give you the right kind of fluff and consistency.
Any kind of milk will do. The base of the drink, like dalgona coffee, is milk. It can be hot or cold, but hot is better. You can use any kind of milk you want!
What You'll Need:
To make this as light and fluffy as possible, it's best to use an immersion blender with the whisk attachment. Hand whisking will take forever and you still risk not getting the right consistency. A stand mixer usually doesn't whip it exactly right because it is such a small amount.
A milk frother/steamer is helpful, but you can honestly just nuke the milk in the microwave or on the stovetop! My frother has a great steam setting and makes the milk the perfect temperature.
How to Make Whipped Hot Chocolate
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 - 2 cups milk of choice
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Mix. In a canister or quart container, combine heavy cream, sugar, and cocoa powder. Use the immersion blender whisk to create the whipped topping.
Heat. Steam the milk and pour into a mug.
Top. Top the milk with the whipped chocolate. Stir and enjoy!
You could use cold milk if you don't want a hot chocolate, and make a whipped chocolate milk (more or less) but it is so much more festive in a cute holiday mug! Curl up with a Hallmark Christmas movie, a blanket, and sip your new favorite winter drink.
