Have I taken my obsession with the colour pink too far? Maybe.
I say that with confidence as today, I’m changing up the usual hot chocolate recipe for a pink hot chocolate one, yes that’s right, pink hot chocolate. What? How?
Well let me tell you.
First things first, this isn’t like usual hot chocolate, it’s made with white chocolate and milk, so it’s a different taste to what you may be used to. Personally, I’m not sure if I’ll be making this too often, but it sure is pretty and if you’re a big white chocolate fan, then you will probably love this!
What You Will Need :
Milk of choice (oat milk is my milk of choice in case you were wondering, but you probably weren’t)
White Chocolate (use your fave white chocolate i.e milky bar, green & blacks, etc…. )
Pink Food Colouring
Decorations of choice : I have gone for pink sprinkles and snowflakes of course.
What You Need To Do :
Pop about 500ml of milk (which will make two drinks) into a saucepan to warm up.
Drop in your white chocolate, you will probably need quite a lot, so add some in, taste and keep going till you get your desired taste. Add a couple of drops of vanilla essence too.
Then once the chocolate is dissolved, and the milk has warmed up, add in a few drops of food colouring to get the pink effect.
Pour into glasses, and try to avoid spilling all over the counter top like I did.
Add your whipped cream, and decorations…
Drink and enjoy the buzz of the food colouring e numbers for the next three hours. I’m just kidding. You’ll be buzzing for at least four hours.

When I created this, I soon realised I liked the look of this more than the taste, but that’s because it was quite milky and white chocolate-y (funnily enough) which I’m not a huge fan of. But I think this is a cute treat for little ones (though maybe don’t add so many food colouring drops for them) or for a party, or just to try something different.
I won’t be giving up my standard hot chocolate anytime soon, but I’m glad I made this, and will have to make it for my 6 year old sister as I’m sure she’ll love this!
I have another more chocolatey hot chocolate recipe coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that, but for now I will leave you.
Let me know if you try the pink hot chocolate, and tag me in any pictures, as I’d love to see!
See you tomorrow 🙂
