Gingerbread Hot Chocolate Recipe

    4 Servings


  • 6 cups Chocolate Milk
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, Good quality
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Biscoff Spread, Heaping
  • 3 teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
Optional Toppings:
  • Whipped Cream
  • Miniature Marshmallows
  • Cocoa Powder, For dusting
  • Cinnamon Sticks, For stirring
  • Mini Gingerbread Men, For garnish


  1. In a large saucepan combine the chocolate milk, cocoa powder, brown sugar, Biscoff spread, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar and Biscoff dissolve completely. Do not overcook and do not boil.
  3. Cook for about 5 minutes, just until the mixture is steaming and is warmed thoroughly. A little tip is to remove a small amount with a ladle to test it prior to removing from heat. That way you can check the flavour, and the temperature.
  4. Remove from heat and pour into mugs. Fill each mug 3/4 full, that way you leave room for add-ins.
  5. Top each mug with whipped cream, mini marshmallows, and then shake some cocoa powder over top. Add a cinnamon stick for stirring, and a gingerbread man for fun!
  6. Serve with a big old hot chocolate loving smile!
