23 Hot Chocolate Recipes to Try This Winter

So how much did the title of this post bring you to your toes? It certainly caught my interest!

To be very honest with you - I never knew there were so many different types of hot chocolate - what about you?

Nutella Hot Chocolate


  • 2 Tbsp. Nutella
  • 1 cup milk (any kind)
  • optional toppings: whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate syrup, chocolate shavings

Now let's make:

  1. Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until steaming (not boiling), stirring occasionally.
  2. Add in the Nutella, and whisk until dissolved.
  3. Serve immediately, either plain or with your desired toppings.

Italian Hot Chocolate

The best thing about this hot chocolate recipe (besides the fact that it tastes incredible) is that it’s ready in just 10 minutes, from start to finish, and only requires 5 simple and easy ingredients:

  • fresh milk ( feel free to use whole or semi skimmed)
  • high-quality cocoa powder ( I like to use the Madagascar variety)
  • 70% high-quality organic dark chocolate
  • sugar
  • cornflour (make sure it’s labelled gluten-free if you have dietary restrictions)

The recipe couldn’t be easier and requires only simple kitchen tools and minimum efforts.

  1. Start by whisking cornflour, cocoa and sugar in a small pot, then pour the warm milk into the pot.
  2. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat, whisking often to avoid lumps. Bring the mixture almost to a light boil, then reduce the heat to low and fold in the chopped chocolate.
  3. Whisk the drinking chocolate until the melted chocolate combines with the other ingredients, and it reaches a creamy and dense texture, adding more sugar if you like it sweeter.
  4. Divide it among two cups, top with whipped cream and serve.

Sea Salt Hot Chocolate

This deliciously thick hot chocolate is the perfect combination of sweet and salty.


1 cup milk
1 cup double cream
3 1/2 ounces dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), chopped
1 tbsp caster sugar
1⁄2 tsp salt (or to taste)
1 egg yolk

1 Place the milk, cream and chopped chocolate in a saucepan with the sugar and salt, and heat over low heat until the chocolate has melted, whisking all the time.

2 Taste to see whether if you need to add a little more salt for an extra salty kick. Remove from the heat and whisk in the egg yolk to thicken the hot chocolate.

3 Pass it through a sieve, then pour into two cups and serve immediately.
