Make this silky smooth and luscious Red Velvet Hot Chocolate with the most decadent Cream Cheese Whip Cream for Valentine’s Day this year!

I’ve been brainstorming some Valentine’s Day recipes to make for you guys and literally the only thing I can think of is red velvet. The color is just so pretty and I can’t help but think it’s the MOST Valentine’s Day thing to make. 

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate + Cream Cheese Whip Cream

So, I guess what I’m trying to say is prepare yourself for lots of red velvet things coming your way. Well, three. Including this one. I just can’t not, you know?

If you’re looking for a really pretty and fun drink to cozy up with with someone you love or someone you like, or maybe you like yourself and just want to chiiiiilll for a moment with a super indulgent and bomb drink. I gotchu. 

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate + Cream Cheese Whip Cream

I made this red velvet hot chocolate which, let’s be honest, is really just hot chocolate with red food coloring in it. BUT! I impulsively made a cream cheese whip cream to really make this truly a red velvet treat. And guys, this is unbelievably delicious. 

It’s silky smooth, rich, creamy and lush. If you’re not a huge chocolate dessert person but just want a little sweet treat to end the night. I’m letting you know right now that this may just be the perfect recipe. So, let’s just right into it!

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate + Cream Cheese Whip Cream

Place the milk (or almond milk), cocoa powder, agave nectar, vanilla, red food coloring, and sea salt in a sauce pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes, whisking frequently. Once warmed and combined, pour into two individual mugs. 

Meanwhile, place the heavy whipping cream and cream cheese into a standing mixer and whip on high for 3 minutes until the cream starts to stiffen. Add the agave nectar and vanilla. Whip for another two minutes until the whip cream has stiff peaks.

To achieve a swirl effect, transfer to a plastic baggie and cut off one corner. Alternatively, you can dollop the whip cream on top of the red velvet hot chocolate. 

Decorate! This is optional, but to make it even morrrre pretty: Place 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder in a metal sifter and shift it over the hot chocolate. Add some festive sprinkles if desired.
