Yesterday we made this yummy drink as part of our Valentine countdown. It’s SO yummy, and my kids were pretty thrilled by the fact that it was pink. Even the boys! It’s a fun way to get warm and celebrate the holiday!

My kids think I’m magic.  :) They have no idea how the hot chocolate gets pink, and I’ve told them it’s a very special mom secret (passed down to me by my mom), and that I’ll tell them all about it when they grow up. They like to watch whenever I’m working the kitchen, but I made them leave when it was time for the “pink” part.  I LOVE it.

I make it a couple of times every year during the Valentine’s Day season, and it’s always a hit.  I love to serve it as part of our Valentine’s Day breakfast, and it’s fun and festive for any kind of Valentine party or gathering. It’s extra cold in lots of places this winter, so pink hot chocolate might be the perfect thing to warm up!

It’s a simple recipe, and can be made in less than 10 minutes. I give my kids the choice of whipped cream or marshmallows, and then a few sprinkles for the top. They love creating their own special drink, and it makes it even more fun!

  1. I have a group of about 20 that i would love to make this for, should i just double the recipe? Any suggestions? Thanks!

    1. For that many, you may want to triple it. We have a family of 8, and one batch is just enough for us! Lol.

  2. Thinking about making this for my daughter’s school Valentine party. Could I add the food coloring and keep it hot in my crockpot, or will keeping it on the heat do something to the food coloring? Thanks

    1. I’m honestly not sure, Amber, I’m sorry! I personally would be okay keeping it warm for my kids, but you may want to do a little searching online to see if you can find out anything before you decide. And if do, please let me know!!
