How to Make a Luxurious Italian Hot Chocolate & Christmas Chow

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

In this episode, I will show you how to make a luxurious Italian Hot Chocolate and a fun Christmas Chow you can munch on while watching a festive film.


Italian Hot Chocolate:

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

  • 2-3 teaspoons cornstarch

  • 50 grams or about a 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips (around 60%)

  • 1 1/2 cups milk

  • Whipped Cream, or Marshmallows as garnish


1.) Add your coco powder, powdered sugar, cornstarch, dark chocolate chips, and milk to a small saucepan.

2.) Heat it over medium heat while whisking continuously until the mixture becomes bubbly and thick.

3.) Pour and Serve with Whipped Cream or Marshmallows as a garnish.

Christmas Chow:


  • 2 cups salted snacking pretzels

  • 1 1/2 bags of white chocolate chips or White Creme Chips.

  • 1 bag Christmas M&M's (any flavor will do. I use Peanut M&M).

  • 1 cup lightly salted cocktail peanuts

  • 3 cups rice or corn Chex cereal

  • 2 cups Cheerios


1.) Mix your pretzels, peanuts, Chex, and Cheerios in a large bowl.

2.) Melt your White Chocolate Chips in a microwave or double boiling method.

3.) Pour the melted White Chocolate Chips over your dry pretzels, peanuts, and cereals and mix.

4.) Once the Chocolate has cooled a little, add in your M&M's and mix. If you add in the M&M's too soon the colors could bleed and if you add them too late they won't adhere to the rest of the mixture.

5.) Pour the mixture on a lined baking sheet and allow it to cool. Break up and place into a bowl to serve.
