Easy Hot Chocolate Recipe


This is seriously the easiest hot chocolate you will ever make in your entire life.


  • 1 1/2 c. half in half
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 c. chocolate syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. rum (optional)


  1. In a medium sauce pan, bring half and half and heavy cream to a slight boil. Once the milk has started simmering, pour in the sugar and stir for about 2 minutes so it will dissolve. Turn the heat low and sift in the cocoa. Stir until completely dissolved (you might have to whisk a little bit to break up any large clumps of cocoa).
  2. Once the milk starts to look like chocolate milk, add in the chocolate syrup, vanilla extract, and rum if you are using it. Stir until well mixed. Serve with marshmallows or whipped cream!
