The holidays are already filled with an evening at the theater to see Annie, brunch with Santa and an array of Christmas light displays. Sometimes, I just enjoy celebrating at home, cozied up with a cup of hot cocoa, nestled in on our tiny love seat in our pajamas.

Inspired by our pink Christmas decorations, I mixed up something sweet for the girls – pink hot chocolate. With three girls, we love all things pink and I wanted to make a special drink that feels just as magical as the season.

A Creamy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Last weekend, we visited our favorite theme park, Silver Dollar City and lines were filled with 50+ people hoping to get their hands on a cup of powdered water hot cocoa. The shame! I never understood making hot chocolate with water…we prefer ours creamy. I suggest you use whole milk for the most creamy chocolate, but you can use 2% if you prefer.

Pink Hot Chocolate For A Fun Holiday Drink

My pink hot chocolate recipe is rich, creamy and easy to drink. No artificial flavors or powders, just yummy milk, white chocolate and a touch of food coloring. You can add a hint of vanilla if you’d like, too! The girls loved it and it dissapeared so quickly!

This dreamy version of hot chocolate is a fun way to mix things up this winter.
