Bookish Baking: Hot Cocoa (Polar Express)

Last recipe of the year!
Quick, easy, delicious, and season appropriate, even if the lack of snow makes it unnecessary where I live.

Hot Chocolate

  • 6 cups of milk
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Candy canes – for garnish
  • Whipped cream – for garnish


  • Stir together all ingredients over a low heat in a large pot over the stove.
  • Cook for about 30 minutes, until chocolate is fully melted and combined.
  • Serves about six.

I love The Polar Express. I saw it for the first time by accident, I was on a summer camp field trip (you know, when they play reruns of movies cheap in the summer for camp groups?) and we were meant to watch either Rugrats or Jimmy Neutron, I can’t recall, but my uncle (a chaperone) took us into the wrong theater and we saw The Polar Express instead.

I thought this was a good Christmas-y recipe for my third and last of the month.

Let me know what you think, and how it turns out if you make it!
