8 Treats for Valentine's Day

Raspberry hot chocolate is a sweat treat for your young valentine. This chocolate is white hot—in a good way! Mix things up on February 14, and share a mug of this homemade raspberry hot chocolate and whipped cream with your kids. Whole raspberries give this raspberry hot chocolate a rosy hue. Faintly pink and insanely delicious, this raspberry hot chocolate makes the perfect Valentine's Day drink.

What You Need:

  • 1 8-ounce container of fresh raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups cream, divided
  • 6 ounces (1/2 bag) white chocolate chips, found in the baking section of your grocery store

What You Do:

To make the hot chocolate:

To make the whipped cream:

  1. In a small saucepan over medium low heat, stir together the raspberries and 1 tablespoon sugar and cook until the raspberries burst and the sugar dissolves in the berry juices!
  2. With a strainer set over a bowl, pour the mixture into the strainer; use a rubber spatula to push against the wire mesh to release as much liquid as possible. Set aside.
  3. In another saucepan over medium heat, combine the milk and one cup cream. Remove from heat immediately upon reaching a simmer and whisk in the white chocolate chips until melted.
  4. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the raspberry puree to flavor the hot chocolate.
  5. In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, add the remaining one cup cream, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 3 tablespoons of the raspberry puree and whisk on high until medium peaks are formed.
  6. Divide the cocoa into 4-6 mugs and top each with a dollop of whipped cream.

If you make this for Valentine’s breakfast, consider refrigerating some of the whipped cream to top on brownies later that evening for Valentine’s dessert!
