Hot Chocolate 4/13: Cookies & Cream Hot Chocolate

This is one hot chocolate that I've been really excited to try, and I'm so glad I did! I don't know what it is about cookies and cream, but it's a flavour that goes with so many things - cheesecakes, drinks, blocks of chocolate, ice cream, and more!

If you've been keeping up with my Hot Chocolate Challenge, you'll know that I am always looking to simplify recipes - ie: find a way to not use a stove or blender - but I was so excited about trying out this flavour that I actually got my blender out! I did, however, heat it up in a microwave rather than a saucepan, but it still tasted amazing!

I would definitely recommend using Oreos for this recipe, but since I shop at ALDI I had to get their version, which are much less tasty biscuits called Halos. They're still nice though, and they did the job fine, but I definitely think Oreos would have been better.


I crushed up my desired amount of biscuits with my hand into my blender. I'm not 100% sure how many I used,but I think it was around four or five. I added my tablespoons of chocolate drinking powder as always, then my milk, and blended it all together. 

Once it was sufficiently blended together, I poured it into a mug and microwaved it in 30 second intervals until I was satisfied with the temperature, which only took two or three goes. I crushed more biscuits on top for good measure, and added some mini marshmallows because they make everything better, and this was certainly no exception!

A large amount of hot chocolate recipes that I've found online say to heat up the ingredients on a stove and then blend it together, but the last time I put hot liquids into my blender, the came off from all the steam! If I had a simple hand mixer, it would be fine, but my NutriBullet does not like hot liquids, as it is completely sealed and upside down whilst blending. 


If you'd like to make this drink even sweeter, you could add some sugar to the cup before blending it all together - or even after you've heated it up - but it was already so sweet for me that I couldn't even finish it! That didn't stop me from falling in love with it though, and I will definitely be making this flavour again soon!

Until next time,
