Hot Chocolate Part 2
I got to thinking about all the ways you can modify hot chocolate and personalize it. I decided to list all the different add in ideas that I have come across.
Grown Up Versions: Add in Kahlua, Vanilla Vodka, or Irish Cream
Top it: Roasted marshmallow, flavored whip cream, any type of sprinkles
Add extracts: ½ teaspoon of maple, orange, or almond after you remove the cocoa from the heat
Spice it up: with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, chili powder or pumpkin pie spice to the cocoa powder
Add in some coffee to make a lovely mocha!
Creamy Peanut Butter or Nutella
Mix in crushed candy: peanut butter cups, Butterfinger, toffee, Red hots, peppermints
Fun Stir Sticks:
Chocolate coated spoons
How do you do your hot chocolate? I'm a sucker for all things chocolate and peppermint. You could make this for a holiday party and have a hot chocolate bar.
