Hot Cocoa for A Winter's Night

Now, here's the thing. When Ad and I make hot cocoa, we add Peppermint Schnapps. It's minty and delicious. When Shell makes hot cocoa, she adds Bailey's Irish Cream. It's creamy and decadent.

Ad just tried his first cup of Shell's cocoa, and he wanted me to put it on the blog as "Ad's Hot Cocoa" because it's his favorite. But, truthfully we learned about it from Shell, so this is one of her recipes. And now, it's also one of ours. Ad said something about drinking Hot Cocoa with Bailey's every night!

So, here goes:

Hot cocoa (however you make it, we use Swiss Miss)
Boiling water
*Sometimes we add about 1/3 milk and 2/3 hot water
About one shot of Peppermint Schnapps OR Bailey's Irish Cream
Whipped cream is optional, but darn good!

Try it both ways. Let us know which you prefer.

OR, let us know what YOU add to your hot cocoa!

glad you liked it Adam! Any irish cream will do. Bailey's can be expensive. I think I have the "generic" St. Brendan's Irish Cream in the refrigerator. In hot cocoa... you can't taste a difference.
