This homemade Polar Express Hot Chocolate Recipe is so fun and easy to make! Great flavors and easy to make for movie night!

Who doesn’t love the movie Polar Express? A story of a young boy who gets to take a train ride with Santa Claus is an exciting festive treat for the whole family. It’s a Christmas classic that my family can’t get enough of!

That longing to experience the Polar Express in real life is one that I’ve carried for many years, and each year my wish looks like it might come true. Today we are recreating the amazing hot chocolate that you can make for movie night! So what are you waiting for?

Do you make hot chocolate from scratch or do you use the packets?

I personally think that the hot chocolate from scratch is better, because it’s more chocolaty and rich! You definitely get to enjoy the ingredients on a deeper level. Plus you can customize homemade recipes a lot more!

Do you have a favorite hot chocolate recipe?

My family’s hot chocolate recipe is amazing! Our secret ingredient for this deliciousness is cinnamon. I mean, doesn’t that sound interesting? It certainly makes the flavor stand out more than anything else I’ve ever tried. I’m not sure what it is about cinnamon, but it really enhances the hot chocolate so much.

Where to serve this polar express hot chocolate?

Normally I make it in a mug, but you could really serve it anywhere. It’s great for making at home, or bringing somewhere else! To make the drink extra special, you can bring some whipped cream over. That way people can sweeten their own drinks to whatever taste they prefer.

What ingredients do you need for this Polar Express Hot Chocolate?

1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup milk chocolate chips

1.5 cups heavy cream

6 cups whole milk

1 tbsp vanilla

So yummy and fun to make with kids. Enjoy! Let me know how much you love it.
