Serves: 2 servings
Total time: 10 minutes
1½ tablespoons Dutch-processed unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
1 ounce Kahlúa coffee liqueur
Whipped cream and mini marshmallows
- In a medium saucepan, combine milk, sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg over medium heat until heated through, about 2-3 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in Kahlúa.
- Serve immediately, topped with whipped cream and mini marshmallows and drizzled with chocolate syrup.
Once you realize how easy it is to make creamy hot chocolate, you won’t be using store bought powder mixes.
Recipe is adapted from Damn Delicious. I added whipped cream. You can also drizzle with salted caramel, if desired.
