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 earlier in the 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.

Up in the northern hemisphere, with winter on the way, chocolate lovers are enjoying curling up with a steaming mug of this whipped hot chocolate. But down under here in Australia, with summer on the way, it will make the perfect iced chocolate treat.

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!

  • Oh yum! I’ve got to try this one!


  • Not sure I’m understanding the recipe- do you add milk so you can actually drink it? I’m assuming you need to warm it up somewhere in there too?


  • Wow – what a treat! And soooo easy too. Thanks for sharing this with us all.


  • Looks easy and delicious and my hot choc obsessed kids are going to love it!


  • Yummmmm looks amazing. Now I need to go find that coffee one.


  • ???????? I could go one right now lol yum


  • Sounds delicious and a great alternative to coffee if you dont like coffee but don’t be fooled. Cocoa has around 2/3 rds as much caffeine as instant coffee


  • sounds yum


  • YUM!!! These hot chocolate articles are killing me!


  • Sounds too sweet for my liking … I’ll stick to my coffee!


  • So its not like the coffee one then, they just replace milk with cream. Sounds tasty but would definitely not be good for you.


  • Fancy! Although is all the hard work going to make it taste different


  • Surely it doesn’t taste that different to normal hot chocolate?


  • Sounds pretty unhealthy. I have a Milo with a dash of baileys when I feel like a treat


  • Sounds yum but very indulgent. Probably stick to cocoa powder, vanilla essence, a bit of sugar and milk
