This red velvet hot chocolate recipe is sponsored in conjunction with ChristmasSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the ChristmasSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
The best thing about my red velvet hot chocolate is that you can make it in the slower cooker. This recipe makes enough for at least 6 people, with almost no effort at all.
Crockpot Red Velvet Hot Chocolate
One of my favorite sweet drinks the during winter is hot chocolate. Do you call it hot chocolate or hot cocoa? Either way, it is a rich, creamy drink that I savor with every sip.
Homemade hot chocolate is way better than any powdery packet. It’s an entire experience. First, you smell the aroma of melted chocolate. Then, you take your first sip. The thick drink slowly fills your mouth. Creamy….warm….sweet….rich. It’s perfection in a cup.
So what can be better than hot chocolate?
How about red velvet hot chocolate?
It tastes similar but has a deep red hue. You’ll notice just a slight flavor difference since red velvet has a deeper flavor profile.
Before you turn on your slow cooker, this is what you will need from the store.
- LorAnn Red Velvet Emulsion
- White chocolate chips
- Whole Milk
- Heavy cream
- Mini chocolate chips
- Mini marshmallows
What is Red Velvet Emulsion?
An emulsion is an added flavoring you can put in your baking recipes. It’s kinda like an extract. As opposed to alcohol-based extracts, emulsions don’t bake out in the high heat.
So a red velvet emulsion will not only tint your food that deep red hue, but it will make whatever you are baking taste like red velvet too.
What to Serve With Red Velvet Hot Chocolate
This is a very rich drink. You will want a more understated cookie – like a butter cookie – to go with it. Shortbread cookies are a great idea, so are biscotti biscuits.
One of my personal favorite desserts to eat with this drink is angel food cake. It is so incredibly light!
Red Velvet Hot Chocolate Toppings
What toppings do you like on your hot chocolate? Here are some popular ideas to get you started:
- Cocoa Crispies Cereal (for a fun crunch!)
- Chopped Up Candy bar – put your favorite candy bar in a food processor and then use these crumbles on your hot chocolate
- Sweetened coconut shavings
Extra Fun – Make Your Own Marshmallows
Marshmallows are so easy to make. They make a wonderful homemade gift idea. If you want to make your own, The Flavor Bender has everything you need to know. It requires you to melt a bunch of sugars on the stove and then you let it sit for 6 hours. When you make your own marshmallows, you can add different flavors- like peppermint extract.
Joy Jolt Double Wall Mugs
