This is my third year in a row sharing a unique hot chocolate recipe. You guys must love your hot cocoa, because these posts are always super popular! I decided I had to really mix things up this year and I made a crazy funfetti cake hot chocolate mix! It’s pretty much the cutest thing ever and is an over the top decadent homemade hot chocolate that pretty much no one will be able to resist!
I’m picturing handing out little bags or jars of this mix as favors for a winter birthday party. Or you could make a hot chocolate bar with different varieties and this one would be the star?? Put the mix in mason jars and give them as holiday gifts with a tag attached and the recipe, much like I did with my first white hot chocolate recipe on the blog. Who is going to say no to funfetti sprinkles in their cake flavored hot chocolate?!
I made this funfetti hot chocolate on a snowy day when my girls had a half day of school. They were in the other room while I was setting it up and when they came in and saw a delicious mug of sprinkled goodness with marshmallows on top I think their heads almost exploded with excitement. And of course they LOVED it. They said “this tastes exactly like birthday cake!” And they drank every last drop. This stuff is super rich, so just be warned when giving it to the kids! I would serve it in small mugs for sure.
I found this recipe and adapted it for a yummy homemade hot chocolate mix. Here’s what you will need:
- 1/2 Cup Vanilla Pudding Mix
- 3 Tbs White Cake Mix
- 1 Tbs Funfetti Sprinkles
- 1/4 Tsp Salt
- 1 Cup White Chocolate Chips, Finely Chopped
- 1/4 Cup Powdered Milk
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. For the white chocolate, I like to freeze my chips and then put them in a blender to grind them up. Freezing them first will prevent the blender from melting them.
To make your hot chocolate, add 1/4 cup hot chocolate mix to a mug or jar and add 1 1/4 cups warm milk. Mix well and top with more sprinkles and marshmallows!
It’s so cute and colorful!
No kid is going to be able to resist this treat.
You could also enjoy this mug with a super easy snowflake cookie! Yum!
