Hot Chocolate with a kick, something that will warm you up when you have blizzard conditions and are stuck at home! Boozy Sipping Chocolate is a rich indulgence that you can enjoy staying cozy and warm in the comfort of your own home.
Our families back home are in the midst of a winter wonderland while we in the upstate area are not. It is not normal for those of us in this part of New York to not have snowy conditions in the winter. This year, those south of us in the city and those North and West of us where our families live have been hit with wintry weather! We have not had weather that has required us to shovel our way out of the house yet this winter and while I like that scenario, it kind of scares me too! I mean, what could be in store for those of us who have been lucky with the winter weather this year?
Just because we have had an extremely mild winter here doesn't mean I can't share an occasional indulgence to warm you up. Gather up your ingredients and lets make this Boozy Sipping Chocolate to help keep you all cozy!
I made this drink when my in-laws where in the holiday season. My Mother-in-Law absolutely loves her chocolate so I decided a hot beverage made with sipping chocolate was in store for her. I love coconut flavor so I decided to use a Toasted Coconut Milk in place of the whole milk. This coconut milk has a rich taste but very few calories per serving and I absolutely love it for drink recipes.
This beverage is quite rich and one drink is enough to satisfy you. Since it is a sipping beverage, you can sit down with a cup of this and a good book, curl up with a blanket and spend the next hour reading while you sip and stay warm!
I do love how chocolate will put a smile on Sharon's face 🙂 If I were back home with her I would definitely make her some more chocolate to comfort her in the midst of their snowy weather!
- 1 oz Grand Mariner
- 1 oz Kahlula
- 1 oz Bailey's Irish Cream
- 1 oz Buttershots
- 1-½ cup toasted coconut milk, heated
- ½ cup sipping chocolate
- Mix together liquors. Warm milk until warm to the touch. Stir in sipping chocolate until well combined. Add liquors to milk mixture. Top with whipped cream if desired. Makes 4 servings.
This drink is delicious and definitely the perfect choice for a lazy winter afternoon. As you can see the in-laws were at Grumpy's for the weekend. I always look forward to those visits since I know Shelby will be up before daylight working on her blog and planning what she will make for her post that day. Typically our visits are during hunting season so that Grumpy Sr. and Grumpy Jr can hunt together. For those of you who don't know, my husband has been taking Grumpy Jr to the woods with him since he was five or six years old. So when Grumpy and Shelby moved to Albany, hunting season has never been the same. However on the up side, I get to hang out with Shelby in anticipation of what I will get to sample. The house is full of wonderful aromas, and I am thinking that it is a good thing we don't live closer since the temptations are too great!! So until our next visit, I will have to settle for her blog.
Ooooh.... now that sounds divine!!! Love the photo of your MIL - definitely looks like she is enjoying her sipping chocolate!!!
