Red Velvet Cake is one of my absolute favorite indulgences. I found this recipe for Red Velvet Hot Chocolate on Adventures in the Kitchen. I’ve added some modifications that I’ll be making so that it’s dairy-free and a bit healthier. This looks like a yummy treat for Valentines Day.

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate (see my modifications in parenthesis below for a non-dairy healthier version)
What You’ll Need:
- Pour the heavy cashew cream or regular heavy whipping cream into a mixer and start mixing. Then add the sweetener (sugar, honey or agave) and mix for 3-5 minutes until just before it begins to form stiff peaks.
- Add either the cream cheese or additional cashew cream and mix for 3 more minutes on medium speed. Can place it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
- Heat the whole milk or non-dairy milk in a saucepan on medium heat and mix in the chocolate and salt ensuring that you stir continually. Once it’s all combined and completely warmed add the food coloring and stir.
- Top with additional whipped cream cheese or cashew cream and sprinkle with cocoa powder.
