There’s a new hot chocolate trend that is taking over the world. Whipped hot chocolate is basically a riff on the instant coffee drink that took the internet by storm last year (waaaay back at the beginning of isolation).

If you don’t remember, this frothy iced coffee trend was called a ‘Dalgona Coffee’ and is a Korean coffee drink. It’s basically a cappuccino turned upside down, with the frothy coffee on top and the milk underneath.

The new hot chocolate version of this trend has all the foamy goodness minus the high dose of caffeine. The whipped hot chocolate drink is flooding TikTok with billions of views (and not to mention the spillover into Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat) because it’s so versatile.

“Dalgona is officially dead, it’s all about whipped hot chocolate now” (via Instagram).

You only need three ingredients to make this trendy whipped chocolate drink and you can have it hot or cold. You can then top it off with foam, or you could choose to spice things up by adding a dash of cinnamon.

With winter on the way, chocolate lovers are enjoying curling up with a steaming mug of this whipped hot chocolate.

The Recipe

The recipe varies online for this drink but the basics are the same and but feel free to adjust to your own taste. The main ingredients are:

  • Cocoa powder
  • Double cream
  • Sugar

So how do you make this delicious whipped hot chocolate?

Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to 80ml double cream, mix or whisk together until you get the consistency of whipped cream and add sugar to taste. If you have a hand mixer it will move things along faster but a regular whisk and arm power will get the job done too. Once you’ve got the right consistency pour it into your mug and add your favourite topping and enjoy.

The final key to this whipped hot chocolate recipe seems to be understanding how many marshmallows to add at the end to make it a truly delicious drink… but we’ll leave that up to you (or your kids) to make the call.

And if you get bored you can always turn to whipped matcha, chai, baileys or anything else you can dream up. It’s a versatile trend, so take advantage of it! So start whipping up those whipped hot chocolates – YUM!

  • I wasn’t sure how you could heat up the cream without it curdling. After watching the video I now know you have to use milk which you heat up first before adding the cocoa mix. Just might have to try this if we ever have a cold night.


  • Ahhh I was wondering how to drink double cream but the video made it make sense, milk was left off the ingredients


  • I haven’t tried this but it looks very nice and indulgent.
