Instant Pot Hot Chocolate Recipe

We love homemade Hot Chocolate. Depending on where you live you might also call it Cocoa or Hot Cocoa. This winter treat brings back great memories for many of us. With this recipe, you can make up a batch for a dessert, movie night, Christmas morning, and more with your Instant Pot!

I love adapting regular homemade recipes to the Instant Pot. For this one, I always used to make warm drinks like Hot Chocolate in the slow cooker. It's fairly hands off and makes a lot. Perfect for a group of us, whether it's family or a bunch of teens from our church youth group. It also travels well. The only downside of the slow cooker– well, we know that one. It's SLOW!

Instant Pot Hot Chocolate Ingredients

If I wanted to prepare a batch of Hot Chocolate, I would have to think ahead. Sometimes that's just not feasible during this busy holiday season. And now, with grown kids, sometimes I don't exactly know our evening plans until closer to the evening. This recipe is the perfect solution since it takes under an hour from start to finish. So if everyone wants Hot Chocolate for a Netflix movie night or Christmas morning brunch– it will be ready in no time! 🙂

Hot Chocolate Recipe Ingredients:

If you're making this recipe for Christmas, be sure to put these ingredients on your grocery list ahead of time. Any substitutions will definitely change the consistency and flavor of your Hot Chocolate. You will need whole milk, half and half, milk and white chocolate, sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla.

You can use milk chocolate and white chocolate chips, but be sure they are not artificially flavored. You do want real chocolate for this recipe. Bakers Chocolate is another good one to use.

Instant Pot Hot Chocolate Cooking

Mix all of your ingredients in the Instant Pot, and mix as well as you can. The dry ingredients do not mix completely at this point.

To better incorporate the mixture, you can also add all of your dry ingredients into a separate bowl first. Blend with a whisk, and then add a little milk at a time, whisking after each addition. After your mixture is liquid, pour into the Instant Pot. It will separate again slightly as it cooks, however.
