Toasted Coconut Hot Chocolate Recipe
You’d never guess that this intensely rich, chocolaty drink is actually dairy-free. We made this indulgent hot chocolate with creamy unsweetened coconut milk and topped it with whipped coconut cream (made from chilled canned coconut milk). The key to making coconut whipped cream is to make sure that you don’t shake or tilt the can. You want the rich coconut cream to remain separated from the watery liquid inside. The solidified cream can be beaten with an electric mixer into soft, fluffy whipped coconut cream. (You can make the coconut whipped cream up to 1 day in advance if kept covered in the refrigerator.) Coconut, chocolate, and cinnamon are a heavenly combination and we love topping this drink with all three: toasted shredded coconut flakes, shaved dark chocolate, and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon. Make someone’s day with a cup of this dreamy hot chocolate.
