Spiked Hot chocolate

The season of hot chocolate is here. We love to end our chilly days with a cupful of hot chocolate.

Recently we discovered Bailey’s irish cream liquor and I have been trying to use it in every dessert possible. I recently tried the Bailey’s irish cream with hot chocolate. Gosh! Take it from me, you are gonna love this!

Making Spiked Hot chocolate..

Now, you would say, Jui do you really need to tell me how to make hot chocolate? 

Well, yes, my way of making hot chocolate is slightly different. Usually the recipe goes where you mix milk and chocolate chips and melt it over the gas stove.

On the contrary, I boil milk separately until it becomes slightly thick. The thickness that you usually see when making kheer. And then add chocolate chips. This way, the texture of the milk thickens and brings out creamy taste.

To make it extra fancy, you can add a hint of Bailey’s Irish cream to it before serving. The Bailey’s Irish cream has nutty, creamy flavor that is rich and buttery. The toffee notes and malt-like hint of taste makes it perfect to pair with hot chocolate.
