What do you get when you cross a hot chocolate with a hot toddy? Yep, a hot choddy. Sipping a large glass mug (or bowl) of this is exactly how I want to spend a cold and wintery night, all snuggled up on my couch. You can’t go wrong with this combo. You’ll be feeling heavenly long after the last sip is slurped. Add a little whipped cream on top if you’re really wanting to satisfy that sugar hankering.
1 cup milk (use at least 1 or 2% – feel free to subsitute rice milk for a lactose free version)
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 oz Kahlua or Bailey’s or Amarula
1 oz dark rum
1) In a saucepan heat milk, cocoa powder and brown sugar on med-high, whisking briskly until a gentle simmer begins.
2) Gently simmer and whisk for a few minutes, then remove from heat and whisk in Kahlua and rum.
