Hot Cocoa Dip is the perfect dip to round out the holiday season. Coming together in 5 minutes, this dessert dip pairs perfectly with a table full of other awesome dips like no-bake cappuccino dip and whipped feta cranberry dip!

Easy to make, this dip is another fun way (besides solo cup hot cocoa bombs and a chocolate pinata) way to enjoy hot cocoa mix year-round.

  • Cool Whip Whipped Topping: Just grab a container and ensure it is thawed before making the dip.
  • Marshmallow creme, or Fluff, comes in a can in the baking aisle. It’s used in holiday dips and is great for people who want a thicker, fluffy dip without using cream cheese.
  • Hot chocolate mix: Hot cocoa mix can come in containers or individual packets.
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Graham crackers: I highly suggest Graham crackers for hot cocoa dip, but there are many other suggestions below of delicious dippers that go great.
ingredients for hot chocolate dip.

How to make hot chocolate dip

  1. Add whipped topping, marshmallow fluff, and a packet of the hot chocolate mix to a mixing bowl.
  2. Because marshmallow fluff is pretty sticky, use a hand mixer to beat the chocolate mixture until smooth.
  3. Serve hot chocolate dip topped with mini marshmallows and graham crackers.
  4. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.

Serve for Parties

I make a ton of dips each season, and a lot of times, while a dip is incredibly good, it doesn’t always look gorgeous on a plate. Just a white blob. However, there are several tricks to spice up the look of a dip and make an appetizing splash on the potluck table.

For example, add a drizzle of chocolate sauce or chocolate syrup on top, mix in some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (also great in a holiday fudge recipe), or sprinkle on a few extra marshmallows.

How to store hot cocoa dip

Store this dip in the refrigerator in an airtight or tightly sealed container.

Use it within two days, although you might need to stir it if your dip separates or settles during storage.

What to Dip in Chocolate Dip

These churro nachos are the BEST for serving with cocoa dip.

But if you are looking for something easy, try fresh fruit like strawberries or bananas, plus typical sweet treats like graham crackers, vanilla wafers, cookies, and pretzels!

You can dip chewy chocolate chip cookies or Oreos in hot chocolate dip for an additional special treat!
