Magical Unicorn Hot Chocolate Recipe

5:02 PM

 Learn how to make magical unicorn hot chocolate recipe.  This is a fun winter drink that looks amazing, but it's actually easy to make!  This is perfect for a unicorn themed party, but I think every day is a good day for a unicorn treat.


My daughter and I might be a little unicorn obsessed.  Yes, I know that this magical unicorn hot chocolate recipe is just colored hot chocolate, but it's still fun.


We are a bit extra.  Everything we do has to have a little something more than just basic.  


It's just who we are.  





We both love hot chocolate, so we learned how to make unicorn hot chocolate for a fun twist.


Magical Unicorn Hot Chocolate Recipe


We like our hot chocolate here.  We have a farm, and the work doesn't stop in the winter.  


After spending time taking care of the goat, shoveling snow, or stacking wood, it's nice to have a nice hot cup of hot cocoa.  


Dakota and I like unicorn hot cocoa, but the boys are boring and just like regular.  


If you're looking for more ways to make hot chocolate, try one of these recipes:


 

Milk Choice


Use your choice of milk for unicorn hot cocoa.  I think it tastes best with about 1 part heavy whipping cream and 3 parts milk.


However, you can also use almond milk or oat milk.  If you're cutting calories with a milk alternative and aren't use them because you can't have milk, I find that mixing them works best for recipes.


If you are vegan or dairy free, you can make this magical unicorn hot chocolate recipe with plain or vanilla almond milk.  


You may want to omit the vanilla extract if you use vanilla almond milk.


White Chocolate


You can use either white chocolate chips or white chocolate wafers.  I prefer wafers because they melt better, but chocolate chips will also work.  You might get some floaties from the different fats that they use though.


I really like Ghiradelli white chocolate because it has a great taste.  I've also made this unicorn hot chocolate recipe with Aldi brand white chocolate chips, and they are good too.


For a vegan unicorn hot cocoa recipe, use vegan white chocolate chips.  You can also use sugar free white chocolate chips for a sugar free or keto unicorn hot cocoa recipe. 





Food Coloring


One reason that I add the food coloring at the end is because the boys don't like a purple unicorn hot chocolate recipe.  


You can pour some white and then color the rest if you want to make different colors.


You can use purple melting wafers.  You can use regular food coloring or this Nature's Unicorn Colors and Sprinkles set for a natural option.


Magical Unicorn Hot Chocolate Toppings


I used unicorn sprinkles and whipped cream, but you can really get creative with your unicorn hot cocoa recipe!


Try one of the following toppings:


 

How to Make Unicorn Hot Chocolate in a Slow Cooker


It's easy to make unicorn hot cocoa in a Crock Pot slow cooker for a crowd.  


To make it, simply quadruple the recipe.  Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and cook on low.  Stir it every 15 to 30 minutes until the chocolate is melted.


It takes about 2 hours for the chocolate to melt.  Once it's all melted, turn it to keep warm and serve.


Can You Refrigerate Hot Chocolate?


Yes, if you make this in the slow cooker or just want one serving, you can place the rest in the fridge for a few days.


Can You Reheat Hot Chocolate?


Yes, you can reheat it on the stove or in the microwave.  Just watch so it doesn't burn.


Boozy Unicorn Hot Chocolate


For a boozy unicorn hot chocolate recipe, substitute 1/2 cup of the milk with your choice of alcohol.  Good ones to try are vanilla vodka, Kahlua, RumChata, gin, or tequila.


Alternately, you can make the unicorn hot cocoa recipe as directed and add a shot of your favorite drink to each cup.
