I have been pondering how to make a toasty, yet romantic drink for Valentine’s Day. I thought of hot chocolate, but then thought I needed something with a bit more jazz. Thankfully I stumbled across red velvet hot chocolate. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I haven’t until today and it sounds perfect for Valentine’s Day. I’m a fan of red velvet cake so I can only imagine how scrumptious the hot cocoa will be. This drink should definitely be whipped up and sipped on during the holiday. Plus it’s super easy to make.
All you need to make red velvet hot chocolate is a few drops of red food coloring. That’s it! I know crazy right? I don’t know how, but adding a few drops of red food coloring makes this drink super festive, not to mention yummy.
Just slowly add the food coloring and mix it into your favorite cocoa recipe until the hot chocolate is a little red in color. Add just enough to tint it.
Next add a couple of heart marshmallows or whipped cream with cream cheese. Before you know it you’ve got yourself the perfect Valentine’s drink to snuggle up with a loved one, best friend or your favorite movie on a cold wintry night.
If you need a good cocoa recipe, peek here. Remember you can take away or add according to your liking. But an instant mix would work perfectly fine as well.
This is such a fabulous version of a classic drink.
