Irish Cream Hot Chocolate
This grown-up hot chocolate is perfect on a cold night! Creamy, rich and wonderfully comforting, this drink will be your new favorite!
- 3 c. whole milk
- 2/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 c. sugar
- pinch/grind of salt
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 3-5 oz. Irish Cream 1 - 1.5 oz. per cup
- Optional Toppings:
- whipped cream
- chocolate shavings
In a medium saucepan, add the milk, chocolate chips, sugar and salt. Heat on medium low heat, frequently whisking. Continue whisking until the chocolate melts completely, and the mixture comes to a low simmer. (Do NOT let boil, as it will burn to the bottom of the pan.) Once the liquid comes to a low simmer, promptly remove from heat. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.
To mugs or glasses, add the Irish Cream, and ladle in the hot chocolate. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings if desired.
