Whipped Hot Chocolate Flip

whipped hot chocolate flip

If you love hot chocolate, you need to get crazy and mix it up a bit. This Whipped Hot Chocolate Flip is exactly what it says: whipped chocolate cream sits atop a hot vanilla milk base. Yum!


It’s very simple…start by whipping cream with cocoa powder and confectioners’ sugar. Heat up milk, water and vanilla extract. Pour the milk mixture into a mug, top with chocolate cream, and dunk a biscotti into it. That isn’t necessary, but why not?? By the way, if you’re a trend follower, this is all over Instagram. So it must be good, right?? Okay, I’m being a little sarcastic, but it is very popular right now, so give it a go. Let me know how you liked it!


Add a little Peppermint Schnapps or Bailey’s Irish Cream if you want an adult libation.

Chef’s Notes:

Everyone has a different idea of what temperature they enjoy hot chocolate. Heat your milk and water to your liking.


You can heat the milk and water in the microwave or in a small sauce pan.
