Homemade Hot Chocolate (& Printable Stencil)

Homemade Hot Cholcoate and Mug Stencil

Normally, February in Utah is a bit more snowy and a bit more freezing, but lately we’ve been hitting temps in the low 60’s.

Utah seems to be having a climate crisis, but a mug full of piping hot chocolate is always ok in my book, regardless of the weather.

Jazz it up with a splash of Baileys and a cute topper and you’ve got a winner!

I combined 4 cups of milk and 1/2 cup of heavy cream together and simmered on the stove until warm.

Next, I mixed in one 11.5 ounce bag of chocolate chips, stirring constantly until melted. I used gourmet milk chocolate baking chips, but you can use any type of chip you want. If you want a less sweet hot chocolate, only use 3/4 of the bag.

When it has all melted, it’s a smooth chocolatey dream.

Pick your favorite mug and pour! If you want to spike it, add 1 Tbsp. of Bailey’s Irish Cream in each mug and stir.

I used really tall mugs (yours might be smaller) and this amount filled up three of them perfectly.

How darling are these stencils from Peter Loves Jane?! You can download your own here.

I just cut them out with a pair of scissors, but you could easily use a Silhouette too.

Place the stencil over the top of your mug and dust with any type of powdered topping you like. I used cocoa powder (because who doesn’t want more chocolate) but you could use cinnamon too!

I love unexpected details and this one is too cute.

How could you pass up a mug that looked that good…? I know I couldn’t.
