Six Decadent Hot Chocolate Recipes

A delicious cold weather treat, Hot Chocolate is perfect around a campfire, snuggled up in the RV on a rainy day, or at home while you wait for camping season to begin.

A decadent drink enjoyed by campers of all ages, these eight recipes are indulgent, fun, outrageous, and traditional. Grab a cup (or two) and don’t even worry about the calories.


Basic Hot Chocolate via Delish

Want to stay true to the form? Skip the boxed mix and make your own with this simple, yet indulgent recipe from Delish. Whole milk is best and we definitely recommend splurging on a nice bar of chocolate.

Want to turn this into an adult beverage? Add in 3.5 ozs of Bailey’s and enjoy.

Hot Chocolate Dippers

Hosting a party? Make a batch of basic crock pot hot chocolate and then serve up these creative and varied chocolate dippers and let your guests decide how they’d like to flavor their drink. There’s not limit to the possible combonations you could come up with. These would also go great on a coffee bar too.

S’Mores Hot Chocolate

The ultimate campground treat meets the ultimate chocolate drink in this recipe from the Minimalist Baker. The crushed graham cracker around the rim might be the best part.

Cheesecake Hot Chocolate

At first, you might think this sounds odd, but one sip of this recipe from Homemade in the Kitchen and you’ll know that cheesecake and hot chocolate were meant to be.

Butterbeer (Butterscotch) Hot Chocolate

Butterscotch sauce meets Hot Chocolate meets Harry Potter meets delicious in this recipe from Bakingdom. Your favorite Hogwards students will love drinking a hot mug of Butterbeer while studying for their O.W.L.s

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Peanut butter and chocolate go hand in hand and so it is no surprise that a PB&C recipe ended up on the list. This one from Certified Pastry Aficiando is creamy, yummy and ready in less than 10 minutes.

Honorable Mentions:

Hazelnut Hot Chocolate

Cookies N’ Cream Hot Chocolate
