Everyone loves hot chocolate, but I had a thought recently that was a big hit in our home. Why not have hot chocolate a la mode?

Although I have never heard of anyone doing this before, it didn't stop me trying it with my own family. We used packaged cocoa, but if you want to try to make your own hot chocolate mix, you can! You may even want to try your hand at making it on the stove!

Once you have your cup 3/4 of the way full of hot chocolate, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream (or be crazy and just add your favorite), and then throw a few chocolate chips in to celebrate the new way of drinking a favorite warm beverage.

It is going to be a big hit! At least it was in our home, as it got a big approval from my little guy…
