French Vanilla Hot Chocolate


I have been waiting a long time to share this hot chocolate recipe! I first made this simple French Vanilla Hot Chocolate almost 2 months ago & immediately fell in love.

For some reason I felt like I had to wait until it was a bit cooler before I could share this because I didn’t think anyone else would enjoy drinking hot chocolate in 80 degree weather.

5 min
  1. 1 cup milk
  2. 1 tablespoon Hershey's Cocoa, Special Dark *(1)
  3. 1 & 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  4. 1 & 1/2 tablespoons French Vanilla Creamer
  5. 1/2 teaspoon Torani French Vanilla Syrup - optional
  6. Whipped cream or marshmallows
  1. First, pour 1 cup milk into a mug and warm it up to your preferred heat temperature. I usually microwave the milk for 2-3 minutes allowing it to get a little extra hot so that it won’t get too cooled down when I add the creamer and whipped cream.
  2. Once the milk is hot add the 1 tablespoon Hershey's Cocoa, Special Dark and 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar and mix well. Then stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons of French Vanilla Creamer – or more if you want your French Vanilla Hot Chocolate to be extra creamy - and 1/2 teaspoon Torani French Vanilla Syrup.
  3. Top with whipped cream, marshmallows, and chocolate shavings!
  1. *1. Make sure it is the special dark not the unsweetened
