Total Time

6 minutes 30 seconds


1. In a large mixing bowl, add the heavy cream, hot cocoa mix, and powdered sugar.


2. Use an electric hand mixer to beat on high until stiff peaks form.


3. Transfer the chocolate whipped cream to a large ziplock bag. (Optionally, you can skip this step and just spoon the whipped cream on top of the milk, but it doesn't look as fancy that way.)


4. Fill your mugs ¾ high with warm milk (you can warm it on the stovetop or in the microwave for 90 seconds).


5. Snip the tip off one of the corners of the ziptop bag and pipe the cocoa flavored whipped cream on top of the warm milk.


6. Top with chocolate sprinkles ,mini marshmallows, crushed peppermint candies or all the above!


7. Serve immediately, and the drinkers can stir in the whipped chocolate into the milk before drinking it.
