Pink Hot Chocolate

This 4-ingredient Pink Hot Chocolate is a simple and sweet treat to make for parties and holidays!

Valentine's Day Hot Chocolate

There's nothing quite like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day. If you're wanting to change things up a bit, make some Pink Hot Chocolate instead! It only requires 4 ingredients, which makes it such a simple and quick drink to make for Valentine's Day, birthday parties, or just to brighten things up on a chilly day. If you want to share some with a group, you can easily double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe!

Valentine Hot Chocolate Ingredients

To make a cup of this pink hot chocolate, you will need a few simple ingredients: milk, white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, sprinkles, and your favorite hot chocolate toppings. You will also need a saucepanwhisk, and measuring cups and spoons.

Combine all of the ingredients according to the recipe (below) to make the pink hot chocolate. For best results, I would recommend using high-quality white chocolate chips to make this white hot chocolate. You can even use your favorite white chocolate candy bar or truffles!

Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Serves: 5



  1. In a medium saucepan, combine milk, salt, and sweetened condensed milk. Stir over medium heat until the mixture is steamy. Be very careful not to boil!
  2. Turn down to a low heat and add white chocolate chips, a little bit at a time. Whisk the mixture until it becomes a smooth, creamy consistency.
  3. Remove from the heat and add pink or red food coloring until you get the desired color.
  4. Pour the pink hot chocolate into your favorite mugs, and top with whipped cream, marshmallows, and heart sprinkles. Enjoy immediately.

Storage: Hot chocolate is best enjoyed when served immediately, but can be reheated

Reheating: Reheat hot chocolate in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between to heat it through evenly. For larger batches, you can mix it all up in a slow cooker, and set it to "Keep Warm" when it has been completely mixed together.


  • Exchange white chocolate chips for milk or dark chocolate chips to make a traditional hot chocolate. Do NOT use cocoa powder. It makes the hot chocolate too grainy. It may be difficult to color this pink.
  • For a dairy-free hot chocolate, swap out the milk for dairy-free alternatives; like oat milk or almond milk. The texture may be a little different, but it still tastes delicious!
  • Add in some peppermint extract to make a peppermint pink hot chocolate!
