Diva Dishes... Sinful Hot Chocolate
Updated: Mar 3
It's getting to be that time of the year again when there is a cold snap in the air and cuddling up on the sofa can be so much fun.
Here's a sexy drink for you to make for you and your hubby, boyfriend, or even that special someone you're trying to impress! ;)
There are times when staying home is just so much more pleasurable then spending the night out on the town, especially on those cold nights when you want to cuddle up with your significant other. I love sitting under a warm blanket, with something hot in my hand to drink, and a good movie and the TV. That's when I took a French Hot Chocolate recipe and made it sexy.... I hope you like it!
Spiked Silky Hot Chocolate
(Warning, I hardly ever measure anything and most things I make can be tweaked any way you like. ;) )
First pour about a 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips into a sause pan. (I always use Ghirardelli in all my recipes. Their my favorite)
Next add about 1/4 cup of bittersweet chocolate
For the sweetener you can add, 2 tbs of honey, powder sugar, or brown sugar.... I prefer brown sugar because of its sweet delectable taste. ;)
1/2 cup of heavy cream (Note: I have used half and half before. It was great, just not as creamy)
1 1/2 cups of whole milk... if you're going sexy, might as well go all the way!
Add just a pinch of salt
And last but not least the thing that makes this a sexy as hell date night drink....
Jim Beans Maple Bourbon.
You can add a splash, or a gulp... it's up to you!
If you add the liquor in right away, you will burn off some of the alcohol. But If you're looking for the drink to pack more of a punch... stir the bourbon in after the chocolate and milk have come together.
Melt over a medium low heat until it all melds together in blissful chocolate silky sexiness, and when it's done.... pour that chocolate heaven into a mug. And lastly, add a hearty helping of whipped cream.
Now, for all of you out there who make homemade toppings... you go girl!
But for me, well.... I buy mine from the grocery store, and use up the extra in other ways! ;)
Stay sexy ladies!
P.S. If you want this kid friendly, you don't have to add the liquor, and if your looking to add a little pick me up instead of a night cap.... you can add some instant coffee or espresso to it instead. It's simply sinful!
