The Best Hot Chocolate Recipe

A few months ago a friend and I went out for some cake and hot chocolate -as you do on a hot summer day- at Café Blond in Amsterdam. Blond Amsterdam is a cute Dutch brand for all your homeware needs; mugs, plates, napkins, tea pots: they have it all! Now because it's so popular they created a Blond themed café around the brand including cakes, sandwiches and coffees all served on Blond tableware.

Now I'm not a huge fan of the café. I mean, it's nice and all but a bit overpriced, but if they do one thing right it's hot chocolate. We both went for ''Blond's heaven in a hot tub'', which was indeed heaven in warm cosy mug. Imagine creamy hot chocolate with plenty of whipped cream, marshmallows and extra chocolate on top. It was €5 but totally worth it now that I think back to that day.

Since December has the perfect hot chocolate weather I wanted to recreate the recipe. It makes one cup of amazing hot chocolate that will give you all the Christmas feels. Ooh and don't forget to drink it with a large slice of cake by your side. It's mandatory.

What do you need?
30 gr chocolate -or more if you are a real chocoholic-
1 cup of milk
Whipped cream
Mini marshmallows
More Chocolate 
A cute cup to serve it in

Measure the milk in your cute cup of choice. Pour the milk in a pan and slowly heat it up over medium heat. Add the chocolate and let it completely melt. Pour the chocolate milk in the cup. Add plenty of whipped cream and sprinkle mini marshmallows, colourful sprinkles and more little pieces of chocolate on top. Tada! Your own heaven in a snazzy cup is here. On a more casual day I also love a simple sprinkle of cinnamon. Nothing beats a good old classic.

What is your favourite kind of hot chocolate?


  1. I loooooove hot chocolate, what a fabulous one you seemed to have at the café. I like your idea for recreating it for home too. My favourite kind if maybe mint choc hot chocolate, with whipped cream. Happy holidays! :-) xx
