Star Wars Hot Chocolate Recipe
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/3 cup water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
Whipped cream (optional)
Chocolate syrup (optional)
How to make Star Wars Hot Chocolate:
While this hot chocolate could be made in a microwave, we prefer to prepare it on the stovetop. Grab a medium sized sauce pan to get started.
Mix the sugar and cocoa in the saucepan. Mix in the water and stir while bringing to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and add chocolate chips. Continue to stir until melted. Once melted, continue simmering and stirring for an additional 2 minutes.
Add in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but DO NOT BOIL! Remove saucepan from heat and stir in vanilla.
Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to your mugs to cool cocoa to drinking temperature. If you like, top with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
Of course you'll want some sweet Star Wars treats to serve with your hot cocoa. These Baby Yoda Cookies are adorable and we have step-by-step instructions for you to make them.
For a Dark Side option, you can whip up these fun Stormtrooper cupcakes. Either start baking from scratch, or start with store-bought cupcakes.
