There’s nothing like a cup of hot chocolate during those cold fall and winter days. Then again, I’m a fan of hot chocolate all year ’round, as well as hot chocolate-flavored things that aren’t technically hot chocolate. Like this hot chocolate dip, for example.
Sure, it doesn’t warm your hands or have picturesque tendrils of steam wafting up, but this 4-Ingredient Hot Chocolate Dip is just as tasty and just as addictive! If you’re looking for all the hot chocolate flavor you love, only in dippable, dessert form, then this is the recipe for you!
Aside from being decadent and delicious, this dip comes together in a snap. With just 4 ingredients and 2 steps, you can whip up this tasty treat in 5 minutes or less! What’s not to love about that?
Enough about how great hot chocolate is already, right? Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. What are these 4 magical ingredients? Marshmallow fluff, Cool Whip, hot chocolate powder, and mini marshmallows. Hey, I told you it was decadent, didn’t I?
To make this dip of deliciousness, stir together the marshmallow fluff, Cool Whip, and hot chocolate powder until creamy and smooth. Top with marshmallows and serve with graham crackers or animal crackers. Or, you can just eat it with a spoon. There’s no judgment here!
You can try a few fun variations if you want to switch things up. Try adding a drop or two of peppermint extract to the mix, and top with marshmallows and candy cane pieces. Or, add a little cinnamon to the mix and sprinkle some on top for a Mexican hot chocolate. Trust me, there’s no wrong way to enjoy this easy dessert!
