This red velvet hot chocolate for two is so luxurious, chocolatey, and really does taste just like a drinkable version of cake batter! Chambord optional!
Holy Moly! This red velvet hot chocolate for two is IN-SANE. I thought I knew what decadence was, like when I made this truffle oil potato leek soup, but now I realize that I didn’t really know what decadence was until I tasted this hot chocolate. Now, I KNOW, you’ve seen red velvet hot chocolate around the blogging world, but this one tastes like warm cake batter, that is totally acceptable to drink.
Oh. Em. Gee.
This red velvet hot chocolate for two is thick and rich in the best way possible.This has an adults only version and one that’s kid friendly too! Ladies, go ahead and whip out those yoga pants and sweatshirts now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the most indulgent drink around!
I recently posted about deep dish red velvet cookies for two. It’s really a perfect dessert to end your special Valentine’s Day meal and although I personally love to end my meals with dessert, I know some love to end with an after dinner drink. In the end, I decided to make this a dessert drink. The best of both worlds! Plus, I just think that red velvet anything is the most romantic dessert. 😉
This red velvet hot chocolate for two is really easy to put together, too! Score! Place milk chocolate chips, whole milk, heavy cream, and red velvet cake mix into a saucepan. Cook over medium low heat, whisking constantly, until hot!
Once hot, pour into two – four mugs. You can also add in some Chambord, or your favorite raspberry liqueur, for an extra special touch 🙂
When Trevor tried this, I’m pretty sure his eyes rolled all the way back in his head while he said “wow”. Woot Woot!
Although he loved it, he thought it was a little thick. This red velvet hot chocolate for two definitely thickens as it starts to cool down, so I’d recommend drinking it right away. If it is too thick for you – you’re crazy, just kidding! – just add in skim milk until your desired consistency is reached and rewarm! Trevor absolutely went nuts for it after I added in the skim milk, but I really loved the thick cake batter like consistency…but maybe that’s just me. 🙂
I kid you not, this red velvet hot chocolate for two is so luxurious, chocolatey, and really does taste just like a drinkable version of cake batter! I love that you can make this with or without the Chambord, but if you’re over 21… I wouldn’t pass up the Chambord 😉 If you’re feeling really indulgent, go ahead and add some whipped cream and a little drizzle of chocolate sauce. Unless your name is Jennifer Debth and don’t like whipped cream. I know. Don’t hate me.
This hot chocolate will be a perfect way to end and celebrate Valentine’s Day!
