Author: Dalya Rubin


For the Ganache:

  • 8 ounces of your favorite chocolate chocolate chopped
  • 1 ½ cups full fat or extra creamy oat milk (12 ounces)

For the Hot Cocoa:

  • ¼ cup ganache
  • 1 cup full fat or extra creamy oat milk

Optional Garnish:

  • Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon granulated sugar + ½ teaspoon vanilla extract or use ½ teaspoon vanilla sugar instead
  • Vegan mini marshmallows
  • Vegan whipped cream


Prepare the Ganache:

  • Place chopped chocolate into a large heatproof bowl. Set aside.
  • Place 1 ½ cups oat milk into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  • Pour the simmering milk over the chopped chocolate and let sit for 3 minutes.
  • Carefully stir together the cream and chocolate until a thicker mixture forms (it will still be slightly soupy). Allow to set on the counter for 10 minutes until even more thickened.

Prepare the Hot Cocoa (1 serving):

  • When ready to enjoy hot cocoa, heat 1 cup oat milk in a pot and add ¼ cup of the prepared ganache.
  • Keep the heat on medium-low, and whisk together until warmed through, about 1-2 minutes. Don't bring to a boil.
  • Optionally mix in the sugar and vanilla extract (or simply vanilla sugar).
  • Pour hot cocoa into a tall mug.
  • Garnish with cinnamon, marshmallows or even whipped cream if you like. Enjoy!


  • I enjoyed a combination of bittersweet and semi sweet chocolate.
