My family hates drinking milk, and I'm forced to find unique recipes to make them comfortable.
When I tried this recipe for the first time, the response was overwhelming, and everyone liked it. Since then, I have kept making it whenever my family is bored and looking for a punch.
I prefer this spicy drink because it is super easy to make, and my son loves its taste.
Toppings are optional here. However, our favorite combination is whipped cream and chocolate syrup with Chocolate Shavings. This is a great combo, easier for topping, and perfectly balances with spiced milk.

The key ingredients for Cajun hot chocolate
Cocoa powder. Unsweetened cocoa powder is mentioned in this recipe. Adjust the sugar we add here if you are using a sweetened version.
Dark chocolate chips. I chose dark chocolate chips; you may use semi-sweetened, unsweetened chocolate chips or chocolate bars. Same as cocoa powder, adjust the sugar when using the sweetened chocolate chips.
Sugar. I have used granulated sugar. Instead, you may use light brown sugar to make the cajun spiced hot chocolate taste rich.
Cajun seasoning. These warm spices give the drinks extra flavor and provide a zing.
Milk. Another main ingredient for this spicy drink. For the milk, go for any of your choices, and I would prefer to go with whole milk. On the other hand, choose plant-based milk like almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk to make a vegan drink.
Whipped cream. It's an all-time favorite of everyone for any drink. Whip up to suit your preference.
Melted chocolate. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds or until melted. And drizzle on the top of the cajun hot chocolate drink.
Marshmallow. Another ingredient that compliments this hot chocolate recipe. The mild and creamy bites make the moment wonderful.
Chocolate shavings. This plays a significant role when combined with whipped cream or the marshmallow.
