Dutch Hot Chocolate

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


18 servings

When my grandchildren come over, they like to snack on cookies and mugs of this hot chocolate. It has a sweet chocolate flavor with a hint of cinnamon. The flavor of store-bought mixes just can't compare.—Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana


  • 12 cups milk
  • 6 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar


  1. In a large kettle, combine the milk, water, 1 cup sugar, chocolate and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir until chocolate is melted. Add brown sugar and remaining sugar; cook and stir until heated through. Discard cinnamon.

    This was pretty good if you don't like overly chocolate tasting hot chocolate. I made a few changes...I only had unsweetened chocolate, omitted cinnamon (preference), and cut down on sugar. I only made 1/3 of the recipe...didn't need that many servings! I cut the sugar but a couple of T but I was surprised since I was using unsweetened chocolate. This was a nice subtle flavor which I loved, the hubby still prefers the powdered instant!
