Christmas Hot Chocolate Delight

Is there anything more quintessentially Christmassy than a steaming cup of hot chocolate? We think not! Our Christmas hot chocolate recipe is your ticket to a warm, indulgent, and festive experience. Let's dive right into it.

Colombina Hot Chocolate Recipe

  • 113 g high-quality chocolate, semi-sweet or dark, chopped
  • 210 ml whole milk
  • 65 ml heavy cream
  • 15 g brown sugar
  • Whipped cream for serving
  • Grated chocolate for garnish



  1. Start by chopping the chocolate and placing it in a saucepan.
  2. Add the milk, cream, and brown sugar to the saucepan, then heat everything over medium-low heat.
  3. Stir your mixture continuously until the chocolate melts, the mixture begins to simmer gently, and your chocolate drink becomes completely smooth and slightly thickened.
  4. It's essential to note that this Christmas hot chocolate should be thicker than your classic hot chocolate but not as thick as chocolate fondue. If it's too thin, let it simmer a bit longer. If it's too thick, feel free to add a bit more milk to reach your preferred consistency.
  5. Finally, serve your luscious Christmas hot chocolate in festive cups, garnish it with a dollop of whipped cream, sprinkle some grated chocolate on top, and enjoy immediately. It's like sipping on a cup of holiday joy!
