How to make Hot Cocoa Dip

Step 1: Beat the heavy cream and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form.

While many dip recipes call for cool whip, I love to make my own homemade whipped cream instead as it is so light and fluffy!

Step 2: In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy.

Mix the whipped cream and cream cheese together until smooth.

Step 3: Mix in the instant hot chocolate mix until smooth using a rubber spatula.

Top the hot chocolate dip with mini marshmallows and serve with Nilla Wafers and graham crackers, crackers, or cookies for dipping.

This makes such a cute dip for the holidays and is beautiful on a dessert platter.

I like to serve mine in a bowl surrounded with all of our dippers.

My personal favorite was the Nilla Wafers dipped into the hot chocolate dip. I can’t get enough!

This cocoa dip is so light, fluffy, and tastes just like hot chocolate.

It only takes a few minutes to throw together and is delicious leftover too.

Store any leftover hot cocoa dip in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days, if it lasts that long!
