We love holiday themed hot chocolate at our house! We serve white around Christmas and pink for Valentine's day.

Today I'm sharing this gorgeous green hot chocolate for St. Patrick's Day! Green also happens to be my favorite color, so I especially loved this one.

My girls are both big fans of hot chocolate, so they loved this too. It's sweet, creamy and the serving sizes are small and just the right amount. 

This is absolutely perfect for any cold day. You can skip the food coloring and use any sprinkles you may have on hand.

If you need a bigger batch for a party, just multiply for how many servings you need. It's a hit with almost everyone!

Recipe tips:


  • We usually triple or quadruple this recipe when using the slow cooker and serve it for parties.
  • This hot chocolate may thicken upon cooling. If a film forms on the top of the liquid in the pan, turn the heat back on low and whisk until smooth again.

  • use plain green sprinkles instead of St. Patrick's Day sprinkles
  • add marshmallows for topping
  • use bars of white or vanilla baking chocolate instead of chips. Chop roughly before adding to the saucepan or slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients to ensure that the chocolate melts evenly 
  • skip adding the pinch of salt
