Boozy Hot Cocoa

Boozy Hot Cocoa from

Rich, creamy hot cocoa topped with a big dollop of fresh whipped cream – does it get much better? You bet it does.  Add a nice dose of Godiva white chocolate liqueur to the situation and you’ve got a pretty good thing going on!

So I’m going to keep this short today guys because I’ve got a super busy day.  I’ve got a video shoot this afternoon, and tonight is the big holiday cookie class!  Exciting stuff!  Anyway, I just had to share this recipe because we will be enjoying it this evening, and you should too.

I promise this is simple and quick to make, and aside from being toasty warm, it will also leave you feeling a little toasty ;)  And if the white chocolate liqueur isn’t enough to make you swoon, the fresh nutmeg totally seals the deal.  Fresh makes all the difference here, just grate a little into the mixture, a little more on top of the whipped cream, and you’ll wonder why you ever settled for anything out of a package!

If you’re lucky, you’ll already have some of these cookies hanging around to enjoy with your hot cocoa.  Boozy hot cocoa plus walnut kiss cookies is a total win.  Trust me.  Enjoy, drink up, and I’ll see you here on Thursday with a new holiday cookie!
