Instructions
  1. Heat milk in a large glass cup or bowl until hot, but not boiling, about 1.5 - 2 minutes. Pour in Hot Chocolate mix and stir until well combined.
  2. Pour 2 tablespoons chocolate sauce into a small shallow dish. Dip mugs in chocolate to coat the rim. Pour ½ of the hot chocolate into each mug. Drop two scoops of ice cream into each mug and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
  3. If you want more chocolate around the rim of the mugs, pour leftover sauce from dish into a squirt bottle and run along the rim of the mugs.
  4. Serve immediately.


Once you’ve mixed your hot chocolate, you’ll need to decorate the rim of the mugs with chocolate sauce. This part is fun. The kids love to help “top the mugs,” as they say.

I love the way the chocolate sauce looks around the rim. You can always go heavier if you want, but I drizzle a little around the edges afterwards so I go a little light here.

Pour the hot chocolate into the prepared mugs. The hot chocolate will make the sauce a little runny, but that’s what we want. It looks cool dripping down the inside of the mug.
