Ah, the holidays. The time of the year for friends, family, decorating, shopping, gift-wrapping, in-laws, and…do I even need to say it? Stress! Want to insert a little “me” time into your hurricane of holiday happenings? Try my amaretto hot chocolate. It goes well with a book, a fireplace, and the beautiful sound of complete silence.
1 Packet of Hot Chocolate
1 ¼ oz Amaretto
6 oz Boiling Water
1 Peppermint stick
Add the amaretto to the boiling water
Add the hot chocolate mix
When it is stirred properly and the delicious smell is wafting through your kitchen, pour into a mug, stir again with a peppermint stick, and top with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.
If you are need of a relaxing moment, this spiked chocolate is sure to do the trick!
