Hello & Happy Wednesday!!
One concept that many food blogs are lacking in is drinks! (EDS included) That being said, I was on the hunt to expand our selection and just knew being in the thick of the holiday season..
We had to do some hot chocolate recipes!
Believe it or not I grew up on the powdered hot chocolates we all know and avoid today and I even tried various hot chocolates from shops throughout my pregnancies, and I swear.. they were all underwhelming. Why places miss the mark on hot chocolate, I have no idea.
All you need is real chocolate and boom, you have something amazing no matter where you take the flavors!
To date we’ve done a Mexican Hot Chocolate, Peppermint White Chocolate, Salted Tahini Hot Chocolate, and a Chocolate Mocha, but I was instantly dreaming of the next flavor. And just like that, the Vegan Cookies + Cream White Hot Chocolate was born! The hardest thing about this drink, was just trying to capture it with the coconut whip before it melted lol.
Before you pass on this recipe because it sounds too indulgent and far from the classic hot chocolate, I promise you, it’s something you have to try. While it was randomly made on a whim, it’s actually something people make everywhere or says Pinterest lol. The best part about it, is that chocolate cookies are typically vegan and you can easily find vegan white chocolate chips on Amazon!
What’s great about this recipe? Everything. It’s quick, easy, perfect for fall/winter, can easily be made in bulk, perfect for entertaining, has aesthetic appeal, great for entertaining, you could make it an adult beverage if desired, it’s creamy, packs a rich white chocolate flavor, not overly sweet like many hot chocolate concepts, and has chunks of real cookies in it!
If you’re all about a homemade winter drink, you have to try this new vegan Sugar Free Mocha Hot Chocolate!
Why this recipe is great:
Packed with white chocolate
Chunks of real chocolate cookies
Great for entertaining
Made with just 3 ingredients!
Can easily be made in bulk
