Better than the Best Hot Chocolate
Since the weather man forecasts a 25 degree drop in temperature today I figured now was the perfect time to post this dreamy hot chocolate recipe that my sweet friend Karen shared. Actually, my oldest girls whipped up a double batch of this in no time flat last night so it's super easy to make. A double batch was a really baaaaad idea since it's also very, very (almost too) good and I now have quite a bit of it calling me from the fridge. I meant to try it my coffee this morning, but (luckily for my waistline) I forgot all about it.
Here's what you need:
1 can (14oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 pkg (6oz) Chocolate chips
1 tsp Vanilla... See More
1 cup cool whip
Here's what you do:
Combine Milk & Choc chips in bowl, cover and microwave 2-3 minutes, stirring twice, or until most of chips are soft. Stir until choc melts. Stir in vanilla and let cool. Fold in Cool Whip. Cover & store in frig for up to 2 weeks.
To serve, spoon 3 Tblspns of mixture into mug & fill with hot milk (or do what I do, put mixture in mug with cold milk and heat in microwave, stir and enjoy!)
It was such a wonderful treat last night topped with a spoonful of the extra Cool Whip! Some sweetened, whipped cream would be great if you have that handy or mini marshmallows and chocolate shavings! I bet the fat free sweetened condensed milk and Cool Whip would work fine if you wanted a less guilt inducing version..... but where's the fun in that?
Thanks Karen for the great recipe!
