How To Make (Easy) Unicorn Hot Chocolate

"Mommy! Unicorn hot chocolate EXISTS!" my daughter Natalie shrieked at me. She practically shoved her iPad up my nose. "See? See? See?"

Apparently a cafe called Creme and Sugar makes it. Unfortunately it's in California, so I knew we probably wouldn't be able to make it out there anytime soon.

Natalie really wanted some, so I figured I could try it out. Obviously it wouldn't be as fancy as that one, but it would come pretty close. 





My daughter loved it! She showed her friends and they all wanted some too.


Here's how you can make it!


EASY Unicorn Hot Chocolate






INGREDIENTS





--A white hot chocolate packet


--food coloring


--whipped cream


--sprinkles



INSTRUCTIONS


1. Heat up 6 oz of water. (Or whatever your white hot chocolate package says. I used this one.) I heat up my water in the microwave by putting it in for 3 minutes.


2. Dump the contents of the packet in the hot water. Stir. Add 3 drops of red food dye. (It'll turn pink.) If you prefer another color, use that, but my daughter is all about the pink. Stir again. Obviously if you want a more intense color, use more drops. Ours looked like this:




3. Add whipped cream. Then add the sprinkles. I bought a variety for added fun.


4. Place colorful marshmallows on top if desired!




It really is simple. You could do it the old fashioned way over the stovetop with milk, but my daughter has always been fine with water. I'm all about the easy. The less steps, the better. The cheaper, the better. That's my kitchen motto.



Will you be making unicorn hot chocolate?

  14. I'm not sure what my daughter would like more the unicorn name or the pink. Marshmallows are always a winner here.

  17. This is the cutest idea, and I honestly didn't even know hot chocolate came in white chocolate. *facepalm* I always just buy milk chocolate or the occasional "fancy" dark chocolate. But I love that with white, you can color it for fun, and I love that it's called Unicorn Hot Chocolate, too. My daughters and I made Unicorn Bark several months ago and it was fun but ours came out a little ... muddled. So I'm thinking this is perfect for my girls, and will be awesome for a movie night!
