If you love Star Wars, then check out this adorable “Hoth Cocoa” recipe – a Star Wars Hot Chocolate! Serve in an adorable R2D2 cup that plays holiday cheer and create a Star Wars Hot Chocolate Bar.

Star Wars Hoth Cocoa

My family loves Star Wars.  My husband and I grew up watching the original three movies and our kids have seen the entire six movies. We’re super excited for Star Wars Episode VII! When I was in Hallmark last week picking up our personalized Hanukkah book, I noticed quite a few holiday inspired Star Wars decorations along with gifts from The Peanuts, Rainbow Brite, Itty Bittys and so many other adorable decorations and gifts. I took my hubby back to the store on a date night to do a little shopping.

R2D2 Cup

If you’re a Star Wars fan then you’ll know that Hoth is an ice planet that shows up The Empire Strikes Back. It’s a cold planet that requires something hot to drink. Well, Hallmark has this adorable little R2D2 cup that plays Jingle Bells and was just begging to be filled with hot chocolate. Then, those salt and pepper shakers from the Dark Side also needed to come home with us. I picked up the Wookie travel mug for my husband for Christmas.  I put it all together and created a Star Wars hot chocolate recipe and a Hoth Cocoa Bar!

Hot Chocolate with Sweetened Condensed Milk

I usually make hot chocolate with milk and a homemade mix. But I recently saw a hot chocolate recipe that called for sweetened condensed milk and water. That didn’t really sound like it would work, but I love the idea of having an option to make hot cocoa when I’m out of milk.

And it worked perfectly! It was so creamy and full of chocolate flavor. I think I may just make hot chocolate this way from now on.

Star Wars Hot Chocolate Bar

Once I had a batch of hot chocolate ready to serve, I set up the table with toppings.  I put ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg in the salt and pepper shakers. I also had a can of whipped cream ready to go.  This would be such a fun way to celebrate the new Star Wars movie – or just have a Star Wars movie marathon snuggled in at home. Check out my video to hear R2D2 sing!

Make sure to head to your local Hallmark this holiday season to stock up on cards, gifts, and decorations!

    I make a similar recipe that’s super rich and delicious. I have a little guy having a Star Wars party for his 4th bday that would get a kick out of that cup. Thanks for sharing!
