Red Velvet Cocoa

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Red velvet just made its way into your hot cocoa cup! Made with melted ice cream and other decadent stuff, this is a ruby-red sip you don't wanna miss.

Who wants a white Christmas? Such a thing is totally anti-fashion sense, anyhoo. No white after Labor Day, and all that.

No way. We want pop. We want fizzz. We want styyyle all jazzed up around our holiday. We're just awesome-sauce like that, so claim it!

Rather than whipping up regular ol' cocoa with white milk, all traditional-schmedicinal and plain, this year we're putting a festive twist on the classic winter drink -- and it's a bold one.

Red, baby. Red!

You ready? Here's how we're gonna rock it out, Red Velvet Cocoa style.


Red velvet cocoa ingredients.

Gather five fancy lil' ingredients. Yes. That's ice cream and butter in the same recipe. Sometimes style is about thinking with decadent abandon.


Melt ice cream in a pot.

This is the eassssy part. Ice cream in a schmexy silver pot.


Add butter and sugar.

Butta. Suga. In the pot, too. They all like to mingle with the ice cream. It's a stylish food socialite thing. Heat over medium heat until melty melty-pants.


Add red food coloring.

Now kersquish some red Betty Crocker gel coloring into your pan. As much as you need to get the perfect color for the season.


Whisk until melted.

Whisk until melted then...


Add water.

Stir in a few cups of water. Yes, we know. It's a bold move, but you won't be sorry.


Red velvet cocoa ready to drink!

Pour your piping hot, super luxey, Red Velvet Cocoa into pretty mugs. Top with whipped cream. Sprankle with crushed candy canes if you believe in over-the-top awesomeness -- then get your sip on quick.

You bold and stylish sipper, you.
