Gingerbread Hot Cocoa – Happy Christmas & New Year Holiday Party Drink Recipe

  1. In a small saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a soft boil over medium high heat. Reduce to a low simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, until the mixture has thickened to a syrup consistency (about the same as maple syrup). Use in hot cocoa or a latte right away, or transfer to a heat proof container, and keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Make the hot cocoa:

  1. Pour milk in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes (optional).
  2. Transfer milk to small saucepan over medium heat and whisk in the gingerbread syrup, cocoa, sugar, chocolate chips and vanilla. Continue cooking over medium heat, whisking almost constantly, until it just barely begins to lightly boil, about 10 minutes; remove from heat.
  3. Divide between 4 mugs, top with marshmallows or whipped cream, and any other treats you want.
