Santa's Spiked Hot Chocolate

I'm thinking there may be some early birds this weekend getting ready to decorate for Christmas. If that's the case, the following recipe for spiked hot chocolate may be just the thing!

I originally posted this a few years ago but will ressurect it now in honour of December.

Just make sure Santa's not driving the sleigh before you serve him this one!!

Santa's Spiked Hot Chocolate



1 oz Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
2 oz Bailey's Irish cream
hot chocolate (I use Swiss Miss)
1 1/2 oz whipped cream

Gently heat your liquers before adding them to piping hot, hot chocolate ( about 15 seconds in the microwave.

Add it all together and then top with whipped cream.

Sooooo good!

As an aside and in a pinch kahlua liquer is also very good in hot chocolate.

Cheers!

  5. LYNDS...

    I LOVE SWISS MISS THE BESTEST...

    WHIPPED CREAM "OR" MARSHMALLOWS...

    EACH MAKE THEIR OWN UNIQUE CONTRIBUT- ION TO THE WONDERLAND THAT IS HOT CHOCOLATE [COCOA].

    HOWEVER, I'VE NEVER HAD FRANGELICO THAT I'M AWARE OF AND UNSURE EXACTLY WHAT A HAZELNUT TASTES LIKE.

    I DON'T LIKE KAHLUA OR ANYTHING COFFEE-ISH.

    I DO LOVE ME SOME LIL DEB'S THO...

    TRU DAT!

    I LOVE HOW U LET YER INNER CHILD OUT TO LAY DURING THE HOLIDAYS.

    IT ALWAYS MAKES ME SMILE!

  7. It's not really hot chocolate weather here right now - bubbles would be a more likely choice for a tree trimming gathering here right now. But I'm bookmarking this for winter - yum!
