One of my favorite things during this cold time of year is hot chocolate. It is just so comforting to snuggle up with your hubby while listening to Christmas music with a nice warm blanket and a piping hot mug of liquid love!
Because I love hot chocolate so much, I even craved it in the middle of summer this year and I would drink it even while 5 months pregnant, I love trying different brands and different flavors. The most recent brand of hot chocolate that I tried was Sippity hot chocolate from Southwest Beverages.
They have six flavors which are:
On their website you can buy the flavors separately or you can buy a collection box that comes with the first five flavors mentioned above. My favorite of the flavors I tried were the chocolate peppermint and the chocolate marshmallow. I personally am not a fan of the other three types but that is my preference, it wouldn’t change with any brand of hot chocolate that I will ever try.
Sippity hot chocolate is very easy to make. All you have to do is empty the packet of hot chocolate mix into 8 ounces of hot water, stir and then enjoy.
Besides just making a warm cup of hot chocolate you can also try out some of their recipes that they have on their website and in an ebook from recipes their customers have made. I made one of the recipes on their website and I think it turned out pretty well.
The recipe I made was their cocoa milkshake.
-1 1/2 C Vanilla Ice Cream
-One Packet of Sippity hot chocolate (My husband recommends using 1/2-3/4 of the packet, it ended up a little too sweet for his liking)
-1/4 C ice cold water (I would recommend changing this to milk to give it a more creamy texture, I felt like the water stayed separated from the ice cream)
1. Add the water (or milk) and Sippity hot chocolate mix to a a blender and add 1/2 C of ice cream. Pulse a few times until smooth.
2. Add the rest of the ice cream (1 C) and pulse the blender until it is at the consistency you want.
Now it is a drink you can enjoy not only during the cold months but also during the hot months!
Sippity hot chocolate was one I enjoyed a lot and what a great stocking stuffer, inexpensive and delicious, perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.
