Chai Hot Chocolate

When the weather gets a little cooler, everyone in our house is always ready for a cup of hot chocolate. The kids never waste any time asking for their favourite fall drink. I love hot chocolate too, but sometimes I like to #StirThingsUp. In this case I decided to experiment with another of my favourite drinks to see what would happen. What I ended up with was a warm and flavourful cup of Chai Hot Chocolate.

How to make Chai Hot Chocolate

1. Brew a strong cup of chai in a pot. You can do that with a pre-flavoured chai tea bag or you can try a homemade recipe.

2. When the chai is ready, remove it from the heat and let it cool for about 5-10 minutes.

3. Put the pot back on the stovetop. Add 2 tbsp of Nestlé Carnation Hot Chocolate into the pot. Heat over med-low for about 3 minutes, stirring until completely combined.

If you like it a little frothy, whisk it in the pot.
If not, then pour the Chai Hot Chocolate into your favourite tea cup and enjoy with your favourite cookie. For me it’s an Indian cookie my mom makes called nankhatai.
(This recipe makes one serving)

I love that I was able to take two of my favourite warm drinks and combine them into a cup of Chai Hot Chocolate. If you enjoy chai and hot chocolate, I would definitely try this. Carnation Hot Chocolate is made of pure cocoa and it makes it easy for you to transform your chai into a chocolate tea for something a little different this fall.

And now for even more fun, one of you will win a Fitbit Blaze! How you might ask? Well, you have to #StirThingsUp yourself. In the comments, share an idea of how you would use Carnation Hot Chocolate in a different way. Then click on the rafflecopter below to get more options to enter. Good luck!
