Hot chocolate is one of my favorite little indulgences. You can have a quick cup with premade hot chocolate mix, or you can spend the time and make it from scratch.
Or, if you’re feeling really extravagant, you can make boozy hot cocoa. Oh yeah, that’s right. A little addition of your favorite spirit or liqueur can elevate your drink from tasty to a real treat.
We’ve gathered up several of the best spiked hot chocolate recipes from around the internet. These are delicious, and we think that once you try them, you’ll agree.
