There is nothing that us Southerns love more than red velvet. Cake, brownies, cupcakes, cookies; you name it, if it's red velvet we gotta have it. So I thought in the spirit of Valentine's Day, I would share with y'all this recipe for Red Velvet Hot Chocolate. This sweet treat is super easy to whip up and is so much better than that prepackaged swiss miss stuff. Enjoy!


hot chocolate:
2 cups of whole milk
1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp red food color
1 tsp vanilla

whipped cream:
1/4 cup of heavy cream
1 tbsp powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

warm milk over medium
whisk in the chocolate, keep stirring until it is completely melted
stir in the food coloring and the vanilla
in mixer, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla for topping

top the hot chocolate with whipped cream & garnish with chocolate shavings
