We love colorful and holiday themed hot chocolate at our house! We serve white hot chocolate around Christmas and pink hot chocolate for Valentine's day.

Today I'm sharing this gorgeous green hot chocolate that's perfect for St. Patrick's Day or any green themed party or celebration! Green also happens to be my favorite color, so I especially loved this one.

Both of my girls are big fans of hot chocolate, so they loved this too. It's sweet, creamy and the serving sizes are small and just the right amount. 

This is absolutely perfect for any cold day. You can skip the food coloring and use any sprinkles you may have on hand. If you need a bigger batch for a party, just multiply for how many servings you need. It's a hit with kids and adults, too!

Green Hot Chocolate in a saucepan.

You can add or substitute with these ingredients:

  • use bars of white or vanilla baking chocolate instead of chips. Chop roughly before adding to the saucepan or slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients to ensure that the chocolate melts evenly 
  • skip adding the pinch of salt
  • use any color food coloring, or skip if you prefer

Recipe tips:

  • We usually triple or quadruple this recipe when using the slow cooker and serve it for parties.
  • This hot chocolate may thicken upon cooling, if made on the stovetop. If a film forms on the top of the liquid in the pan, turn the heat back on low and whisk until smooth again.
