I’m not a big hot chocolate fan but I have some friends who love the stuff, but I think it’s because of what they add to it! I decided to share their versions of “hot coco”. One of the recipes has mint flavor, which I”m not a fan of but the other that is more coffee/chocolate is really not bad.
So on these cold chilly December nights or if you have been outside in the snow and are chilled to the bone, either one of these recipes will definitely warm you up from the inside. Enjoy!!!! For comments/questions email firstname.lastname@example.org
Adult Hot Cocoa
1 oz brandy
1 oz dark rum (I use http://sailorjerry.com/the-rum/)
1 oz Creme de Mint
1 cup very warm hot cocoa that has been made with no fat half & half (anything but water)
Low Fat or Fat Free Cool Whip – frozen
Mix all the liquors into a measuring cup. Make a cup of hot cocoa in a large enough cup so add 3 more ounces as well as some whip topping. Blend all the ingredients except the Cool Whip.
Just before serving add a dollop of Cool Whip on the top of the hot cocoa. The Cool Whip will melt and make the drink even more creamy!
NOTE: If you are like me and do not like the flavor of mint, you can substitute the creme de mint with Kahlua – delish
