Lavender Hot Chocolate Recipe

lavenderhotchocolate

I love hot chocolate. And I LOVE lavender. Lavender sachets. Lavender soap. Even lavender lemonade & soda. So when I saw this amazing recipe on a la mode – I just had to try it out – and let me just say – it’s TO DIE FOR. Seriously so delish and savory! I will never go back to powder hot chocolate again! Plus her photos are so stunning, I just had to share with you all. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!

Lavender hot chocolate

Since lavender is quite fragrant, adjust amount according to preference. For a creamier hot chocolate, a 1 to 1 ratio of dark to milk chocolate can be used. Makes 2 servings.

hot chocolate:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate (70% cacao)
  • 1 ounce milk chocolate
  • 1/4 teaspoon lavender buds

whipped cream:

  • 1/2 cup cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or seeds from 1/4 of a whole vanilla bean pod
  • 1/2 tablespoon granulated white sugar

For whipped cream, place cold cream, vanilla, and sugar into a cold mixing bowl. Beat the mixture with a whisk or mixer until stiff peaks form. keep refrigerated until ready for use.

For hot chocolate, heat milk and lavender over medium heat, whisking occasionally until the milk begins to simmer. Remove from heat and let lavender steep for 5 minutes. Strain lavender and return milk to saucepan. Over medium heat, add chocolate and mix until chocolate is melted and incorporated. Whisk milk mixture for 10-20 seconds until frothy. Pour into mugs or bowls and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

  1. where do you get lavender buds from?? Obviously a lavender plant, but where did you get yours?
