In a couple of weeks, I’ll be hosting a cookie exchange at my house (my first!) and one of the things I want to put together for the event is a hot chocolate bar. Or hot cocoa bar. Or chocolate all the things bar. Of course, we’re including marshmallows, and crushed candy cane but I think what’s going to take this party up a level is a spiked hot chocolate bar. Mmmmm…..boozy chocolate things.
Today I’m sharing my slow cooker hot cocoa recipe along with 10 grown up hot chocolate recipes. Why the slow cooker? Because instant hot chocolate is fine for the kids but not the 10 women with full time jobs who just baked 10 dozen cookies. And, I work hard too, so I don’t want to stand around serving all night. Why spiked? Ummm….if you’re asking that question, you’re visiting the wrong blog. Here are a few great spiked hot chocolate ideas with my favorite hot cocoa recipe at the bottom of this post.
