Vegan Hot Chocolate Recipe

Making vegan hot cocoa is super simple! Even if you don’t have one of the pre-made mixes.

In fact, it’s as simple as picking up Hershey’s Cocoa (the original and Special Dark varieties are both vegan) the next time you’re at the store, your favorite plant based milk and sweetener, and some vegan marshmallows.

Just heat up 1 cup of unsweetened vegan milk (I prefer oat) in the microwave or on the stove. Add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder and 1.5 tbsp vegan chocolate (chips or bar chopped). Continuing heating in microwave or stove. Taste and adjust sweetness.

Top with vegan marshmallows and whipped cream!
