I have made this adult hot chocolate for many of you at my home, and those of you that have tried it, can attest to how incredibly addictive this drink is! Everyone that has tried it has always LOVED it – so here is the simple recipe so you can all make it at home!
It is an ‘adult’ because it has alcohol in it. I love my warm, chocolate drinks with a little ‘adult-ness’ to them, but anytime I drink one with whiskey in it, I really feel it in every sip. This drink, on the other hand, is so creamy and delicious, you will forget there is even any liqueur in it! This is lovely in the evening after a day skiing/boarding on the slopes, or even on a cold, rainy day to warm up your spirit 😉
I love this drink super hot (temperature wise), but drink it at whatever temperature suits you!
Yield: 1 serving
1 cup milk
3 teaspoons of hot chocolate mix (or the equivalent of one serving of hot chocolate, depending on the brand/mix you use!)
1 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
1 oz Kahlua (Coffee Liqueur)
1 oz Amaretto (Almond Liqueur)
1 tsp cinnamon OR 1 tsp. chili pepper (for a little kick!)
chocolate syrup (like Hershey’s), drizzled
Heat mug with milk in the microwave until heated to desired temperature (I like mine really hot and understand my microwave power well, so I heat mine for 2 minutes).
Stir in hot chocolate mix. (Take a sip to make sure the temperature is per your liking – now is the time to reheat if needed!)
Serve with the choice of your toppings and drink hot!
