Even though it doesn’t get too cold at the Disneyland Parks in the winter, it’s cold enough that you’ll want a jacket…and some of their AMAZING Hot Chocolate from the Napa Rose Restaurant in the Grand Californian hotel.
I’m dreaming of this pricey hot chocolate while 9 months pregnant, but there’s no way I am going to Disneyland anytime soon! I decided to make some of my own from the comfort of my own kitchen. It was definitely worth the trip to the grocery store, even in my state. 😉
DISNEYLAND’S HOT CHOCOLATE
1 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup cocoa powder*
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon milk chocolate, grated
1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
whipped cream for topping
ground cinnamon for topping
In a medium sauce pan, pour milk and heavy cream. Heat over medium-high heat (be sure to watch it carefully – you don’t want it to boil or scald!).
In a large bowl, whisk together cocoa, sugar and milk chocolate. Slowly add this dry mixture to the milk mixture until completely combined. Reduce heat to medium.
Add in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla, and stir until completely combined. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve in individual mugs. Top with whipped cream, ground cinnamon, and additional chocolate shavings, if desired.
