Polar Express Hot Chocolate


  • 6 cups milk
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (use a quality chocolate like Ghirardelli)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large pot combine all of the ingredients over low heat. Keep mixture over low heat for 30-40 minutes whisking occasionally until chocolate is fully melted and incorporated with the other ingredients. You can add milk here to adjust to your chocolate preference.
  2. Give it a good whisking before serving to get it nice and frothy. If you have an immersion blender, that works great here.
  3. Serve immediately or pour into a crock pot and keep warm until ready to serve.
  4. Top with whipped cream, crushed candy canes, or sprinkles.
  5. Serves 6-8.
