Indulge in the richness and creaminess of this adults-only boozy hot chocolate, a treat that is sure to please your taste buds. With its velvety texture and the option to experiment with various add-ins, this chocolatey recipe by SSP will never fail to captivate your senses.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 6 ounces of finely chopped semisweet chocolate
  • 3 ounces of your preferred liquor (such as bourbon, rum, or cream liqueur)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • Optional toppings: mini marshmallows or whipped cream, chocolate shavings, sprinkles

Instructions:

1. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the milk just until it begins to barely simmer, making sure not to bring it to a boil. Keep an eye out for small bubbles forming around the edges.

2.  Once the milk is warmed, add the finely chopped chocolate to the saucepan. Whisk the mixture continuously until the chocolate is completely melted and well combined. This process should take about 5 minutes. The resulting mixture should have a smooth and consistent texture, with no visible specks of chocolate remaining. At this point, the color should transform from a pale tan to a luscious milk chocolatey brown. You may notice a thin coating on the bottom of the pan, indicating its readiness.

3. Take the saucepan off the heat and add in the liquor of your choice, vanilla extract, and a pinch of kosher salt. Give it a gentle stir to ensure all the flavors harmonize beautifully.

4.  Allow the hot chocolate to cool for approximately 5 minutes, reaching a safe sipping temperature. Be patient – it should still be hot, but not scalding. Silky smooth and enticingly aromatic, pour the hot chocolate into heatproof mugs. If you notice a slight skin forming on the surface while it cools, simply whisk it gently for a few seconds until the mixture becomes uniform again.

Now, it's time to savor this divine beverage just as it is, or add your chosen toppings to delight your palate even further. Consider mini marshmallows or whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or sprinkles for that playful touch.
