 Here's what I love about these Hot Chocolate Overnight Oats. 

  1. Overnight oats are ready to go in the morning with no additional steps.
  2. This recipe straddles the line between healthy and decadent. It's healthy-ish.
  3. Chocolate. Did I mention CHOCOLATE?!?

Hot Chocolate Overnight Oats

The most satisfying part? That CRACK of breaking through the chocolate layer with a spoon. Who needs the sound of frying bacon anyway

If you're new to overnight oats, here's the deal. You'll stir everything together the night before, and the oats and chia seeds absorb the liquid and become creamy. For our hot chocolate overnight oats, melted chocolate on top will also harden in the fridge overnight.

Using cocoa and vanilla in the oats with a swirl of marshmallow creme and a layer of chocolate on top really captures the flavor of a (cold) hot chocolate! are a few more easy breakfast recipes to try:

Hot Chocolate Overnight Oats ingredients

You'll start by stirring together the main ingredients for the bowl: oats, chia seeds, cocoa, Imperial Sugar light brown sugar, salt, almond milk, vanilla, and yogurt. 

[NOTE: I make these virtually dairy-free by using Forager Cashew Milk Yogurt and almond/coconut milk. The chocolate may have a smidge of dairy, depending on what type you use.]

Hot Chocolate Overnight Oats prep

Divide this mixture into two bowls. I like to use wider, mini "latte bowls" here for a thinner layer of chocolate on top. If you use mugs, the chocolate layer with be thicker. To quote Jerry Seinfeld, "not that there's anything wrong with that."
