Strawberry Sweethearts Cocoa

Strawberry Sweethearts Cocoa

We have a fun Valentine’s Day treat for you today! We are sharing a recipe for Strawberry Sweethearts Cocoa, which is a combination of hot cocoa and a strawberry milkshake. You have to make this sweet drink for your loved ones. It is creamy, dreamy, and the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.

Wait, there is more, not only are we sharing a heavenly recipe, but we are sharing a little bit about ourselves. The lovely Brooke McLay invited us to play the “Newlywed Game.” We are not really newlyweds, we have been married for almost three years, but we were still up for the game.

Brooke made us swear we wouldn’t tell each other our answers and we kept our word. I warned Josh to keep it clean, but really had no clue what his answers were until the post went live today! I hate surprises, so this was hard for me, but still a lot of fun!

Head on over to Babble to play the “Newlywed Game” with us!

Strawberry Sweethearts Cocoa

Yield: Serves 2

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

The perfect drink for your sweetheart!


1 cup mini chocolate chips
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 pint strawberry ice cream
4 cups water
Whipped cream, for serving
1 tablespoon chocolate sprinkles


1. In a medium-sized bowl, melt the chocolate chips and dip the top of four mugs into the chocolate. Set aside, allowing chocolate to harden.

2. In a medium pot, whisk together the butter, sugar, and ice cream over medium high heat until melted. Whisk in the water, one cup at a time until your favorite texture/flavor is achieved. Heat just until steaming. Pour into chocolate-rimmed mugs. Garnish with a dollop of whipping cream and a sprinkling of chocolate sprinkles. Serve with your favorite bite-sized cookies for dipping.
