Craft French Vanilla Hot Chocolate Goodness at Home

  • 2 cups of milk (whole milk or any plant-based milk of your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons of Chicago French Press French Vanilla Hot Chocolate
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • Whipped cream for topping (optional)
  • Chocolate shavings or cocoa powder for garnish (optional)
  • Marshmallows for an extra cozy touch (optional)
  1. Heat the Milk:
    • Pour the milk into a saucepan and heat it over medium heat until it's warm. Be careful not to let it boil.
  2. Mix in Hot Chocolate:
    • In a small bowl, mix the cocoa powder and sugar together. Gradually whisk this mixture into the warm milk until it's fully combined.
  3. Add Vanilla and Salt:
    • Stir in the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. The vanilla enhances the flavor even more, and the salt balances the sweetness.
  4. Whisk to Perfection:
    • To achieve that frothy texture, use a whisk to vigorously stir the hot chocolate. Continue whisking until it becomes frothy and well-mixed. No whisk? No worries, a spoon will do. 
  5. Taste and Adjust and Serve:
    • Taste your hot chocolate and adjust the sweetness if necessary by adding more sugar. Pour the hot chocolate into your favorite CFP mug.
  6. Top it Off:
    • Add a dollop of whipped cream on top for an extra creamy touch. You can also sprinkle chocolate shavings or cocoa powder for a decorative finish.
  7. Go Extra Cozy:
    • If you love marshmallows, toss a few on top. They'll melt into the hot chocolate, creating a delightful, gooey treat.
  8. Enjoy:
    • Find a comfy spot, wrap yourself in a blanket , and enjoy your CFP hot chocolate!
