Last night I wanted to make some hot cocoa, but you know me, I wanted something different. I am also out of vanilla extract at this moment, and regular cocoa without vanilla just falls flat. Fortunately, I quickly came up with an idea for this Irish Cream Hot Chocolate, and it was a hit. Next time I may try more Baileys, but this amount gave the cocoa a nice flavor.
• 3 cups whole organic milk
• 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
• 3 Tbsp sugar
• 1 pinch of salt
• ½ cup Irish Cream
Mix cocoa powder, sugar and salt together.
Pour milk into a pot, put on the stove at medium heat, and whisk cocoa mixture into the milk.
Continue whisking until ingredients are dissolved and cocoa is hot.
Remove from heat and add Irish Cream.
Stir and pour into 2 large mugs.
