Lindt Hot Chocolate – Super Easy and Super Delish!

Okay, I know it’s Spring and everyone is thinking about carrot cake and lemonade. But my friend Nikki CB shared the coolest tip for easy hot chocolate with me and now I need to share it with you, too. RIGHT NOW. So, today we’re having hot chocolate. Hopefully you’re experiencing unseasonably cold weather wherever you are so you can enjoy this recipe pronto!

Get ready for the yummiest easy hot chocolate you’ll ever have. No finely chopping chocolate with a knife necessary!

Nikki was saying how you can visit Lindt chocolate stores or something and they make hot chocolate simply by dropping Lindt truffles right into hot milk. That’s it. As soon as she said it I realized how genius it is. After all, that is some darn good chocolate. Also, think about how those truffles just melt in your mouth. If they melt in your mouth, you better believe they’ll melt in hot milk.

I finally tried the trick and it worked like a charm. The other fun part of Lindt hot chocolate is that you can easily make different flavors of hot chocolate. White hot chocolate, caramel hot chocolate, dark hot chocolate, extra dark hot chocolate, milk hot chocolate. Whatever your favorite truffle flavor is, now it can be your favorite hot chocolate flavor.

Thank you, Nikki. And you’re welcome, everyone else.

Lindt Hot Chocolate
Prep time
Total time
A trick I learned from my friend Nikki who learned it from Lindt.
Serves: 1
  • - 1 cup milk
  • - 3 or 4 Lindt truffles, your favorite flavor (I would avoid hazelnut since it has chunks and wouldn't lend itself well to melting in milk)
  1. Fill a mug with milk.
  2. Microwave for 2 minutes on high., stirring halfway through cooking time.
  3. Add 3 or 4 Lindt truffles (I prefer 4) and whisk into the milk.
  4. Drink!

    I didn’t have any milk and I don’t like milk so I used half and half land Of lakes and a little bit of water aND it tasted sooo of good I would make this everyday!

    I’ve been doing this for years. Two dark chocolate truffles, drop in 8 oz cold milk.

    2 minutes in microwave,

    One teaspoon sugar before or after heating.

    Stir until all signs of solid chocolate are gone. (I use a plain glass cup).


    It works whether the truffles are put in before or after heating.

    Oh, I do this almost every evening. No whisk required, just a spoon. If it has chocolate residue on it just make the sacrifice and lick it off.

    Yes, it is expensive compared to ordinary coco mix or chocolate syrup, but it isn’t ordinary coco either.

    i tried this and it wasn’t really good, not sure why 🙁 it came out oily, didn’t taste much of chocolate, and kept settling unless i stirred it constantly. i’m really bummed out about it to be honest bahaha
