Starbucks Gingerbread Hot Chocolate recipe

Today I’ll share one of my favorite recipe’s with you. A few months ago I went to Starbucks to get a hot chocolate. The man asked if I would like to try the gingerbread one, and I gave it a try. I actually really fell in love with it. It tasted so delicious. I decided to recreate it at home. This is not the original recipe at all, I kind of came up with it myself. If you want to know how to make this delicious drink, keep on reading!


– 1/4 cup Cacao powder
– 3 cupsMilk
– Gingerbread spice
– Chocolate syrup
– Whipped cream

Step 1.

You first have to start with making the hot chocolate. I did this by putting some milk in a little pan untill it’s hot and than add the cacao powder. If you want to save time you can also put a bit of normal chocolate milk in the microwave.

Step 2.

Add a bit of the gingerbread spice to your hot chocolate and stir it until it’s dissolved. When you’ve done that, put the hot chocolate milk in a cup.

Step 3.

Now it’s time to put our whipped cream on top of our drink. I like to use the whipped cream for this that you have to ”whip” yourself at home. It just tastes a lot better and it has a lot more taste to it in my opinion. But again, if you want to save time, just use the ones that come in a can.

Step 4.

Since I couldn’t find gingerbread syrup, I decided to make this myself too. I took some chocolate syrup and mixed it with a bit of the gingerbread spice. When it’s mixed, you can drizzle it on top of your drink and you’re finished.


It’s actually a very easy recipe, but it tastes delicious. It’s a lot cheaper than going to Starbucks, and it tastes almost the same. I really love making this, it’s a little bit different than the usual hot chocolate.

I hope you liked this recipe, and if you have tried it out yourself, let me know what you think of it!
