Red Velvet Hot Cocoa with Cream Cheese Whipped Cream
- 4 cups whole milk
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp. red food coloring
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 3 tbsp. cream cheese
- Cocoa powder for garnish
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
We're going to start by pouring the heavy whipping cream into a stand mixer.
Add the sugar. Begin mixing on medium speed for 2-3 minutes.
Right before it peaks and stiffens, stop mixing.
Add the cream cheese. Mix on medium speed for 3 minutes.
Yumm. That's it for the whipped cream. Store it in the fridge while we work on the hot chocolate.
Heat the 4 cups of milk in a saucepan on medium heat.
Mix in the chocolate chips and salt, stirring continually until combined and completely warmed. Add the food coloring and stir to combine.
Top with cream cheese whipped cream and lightly sprinkle with cocoa powder.
