Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

Most Southerners I know have a special place in their heart for all things Red Velvet, especially around the holidays. This week, I’m making miniature Red Velvet Cakes, last week we made Red Velvet Cookies, and today I’m sharing my recipe for Red Velvet Hot Chocolate!

This is an old fashioned hot chocolate recipe, the kind you make on the stovetop, that will ruin you for store bought mixes. This is what I grew up with: Rich, Creamy, and Chocolate as the day is long. Add a little of that food coloring the stores sell out of this time of year and you’ve got an instant classic! Let’s get on in the kitchen…

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons red liquid food coloring
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla, optional
