Mocha Hot Chocolate
Recipe by Dragon
Brrrrrrr....it's been really cold and snowy up here in Canada this week. We don't call it the great white north for nothing. This mocha hot chocolate is one of my favourite ways to stay warm. Hey, what can I say? I like my hot chocolate like I like my men; smooth, creamy, steamy and with just a touch of alcohol. You may now commence rolling your eyes. :) Enjoy!
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons sugar
2 heaped tablespoons of really good cocoa powder 1/4 prepared strong coffee/espresso
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon of Bailey's Irish Cream
1/4 cup steamed frothed milk or whipped cream
Cocoa powder to garnish
1. Heat the milk, cream, sugar, cocoa powder, coffee/espresso, vanilla and Bailey's together in a small pot. Heat until everything has dissolved and the mixture is hot and steamy.
2. Pour the hot chocolate into two cups and top with frothed milk or whipped cream.
