Vegan Hot Chocolate – Vegan Unicorn Hot Cocoa

Thank you for sharing!

I decided I was tired of being cold and, frankly, wandering around the house with a blanket around you is, well, silly. So I made some Vegan Hot Chocolate (AKA Vegan Unicorn Hot Cocoa) to warm me up!

Look, I know that not everyone is all about the unicorn thing.

But, really, even the hardest hearts have to agree that this Vegan Hot Chocolate (what I’m tempted to call Vegan Unicorn Hot Cocoa for-ever because YEAH!) is super cute and totally worth trying.

Seriously, I think I might have gone overboard on this Vegan Hot Chocolate, though.

I mean, who needs sprinkles with Vegan Unicorn Hot Cocoa? Oh, that’s right! Me!

And my kids–they needed some, too. Obviously.

Despite my need to go overboard, you really do have to try at least the basic recipe.

And, if you’re serious about making this Vegan Hot Chocolate (aka Vegan Unicorn Hot Cocoa), then you have to start with the secret ingredient: vegan white melting chocolate.

You can’t really have pink hot cocoa with cocoa powder or brown chocolate chips. Eh, the pink just wouldn’t come out.

So, don’t go that route.

And, bonus, you can make little shreds of the melting chocolate to put on top of your coconut milk whipped cream along with the marshmallows…mmmm…so much goodness going on here.

Now, if you don’t have some handy white melting chocolate, go ahead and order it. Then pin this recipe for Vegan Hot Chocolate–or Vegan Unicorn Hot Cocoa, if you will–so that you can find it again when you have your chocolate on hand.
