Ingredients you need:

  • Whole milk – you can reduced fat but it doesn’t give a creamy consistency like whole milk does.
  • Sugar – you can use a sugar substitute if you wish.
  • Milk chocolate chips – any kind is fine but I prefer Ghirardelli or Nestle.
  • Dark chocolate chips – again, Ghirardelli is my favorite.
  • Vanilla – pure vanilla extract is best but imitation works too
  • Red velvet syrup – I found this on Amazon and it’s really tasty.
  • Red gel food coloring
