Last night was a hot cocoa kind of night. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any more Swiss Miss. What I did have though, was a huge bag of chocolate chips. Time to make our own cocoa! I’ve seen recipes in the past for red velvet hot chocolate and I personally love love LOVE red velvet anything so I decided to give it a try! This hot chocolate definitely hit the spot! It was pretty rich so a small cup was all I needed! I didn’t feel the need to add any sugar to this, but you can sweeten it however you please and can use any kind of milk.

- Optional: sugar to taste, marshmallows, whipped cream
1. Heat milk on medium heat in a sauce pan. Whisk in sugar. Add chocolate chips and continue whisking until chocolate is completely melted. Add food coloring. Serve hot cocoa with whipped cream or marshmallows!
