An easy spiked hot chocolate recipe is what I need in my life right now. Seriously, I am making this recipe as we speak.

Indulging In This Easy Spiked Hot Chocolate Recipe

One of the best ways to beat the cold weather is to indulge in a delicious spiked hot chocolate beverage.

It’s a perfect drink for the holiday season, not only because it’s incredible but also because it can be made with all your favorite ingredients.

Speaking for myself, my favorite ingredient is liquor. So, I guess it is safe to say that I enjoy most recipes with “spiked” in the name.

It’s always a good time to have a spiked hot chocolate or spiked anything for that matter. Of course, this is only if the drink is spiked with liquor, and with consent.

Also, if you’re in the mood for some spiked hot chocolate then this drink is perfect for you. I mean, what is chocolate without a little extra something, something?

What Is The Best Liquor For Hot Chocolate?

I am a firm believer that you can make any liquor work with hot chocolate. Granted, if the easy spiked hot chocolate recipe used tequila, then it would be a challenge to perfect that recipe.

This is due to the fact that this recipe use milk, and from my experience tequila and milk do not mix well at all.

Now, for my preference, I would go with brown liquor. Furthermore, these brown liquors would be either dark rum, spiced rum, or whiskey.

If I had to recommend what type of whiskey to use, then I would say to use your favorite type of whiskey.

Lately, I have been drinking a lot of bourbon, so I used that type of whiskey whenever I make this recipe.

How Do You Pimp Up Hot Chocolate?

I think I am late to the party, but let me explain. I was Googling questions people had when they are searching for anything hot chocolate related.

One of the questions was “how do you pimp up hot chocolate?” I did not know what that meant, but I can’t imagine anything good coming from a pimp with a fresh cup of hot chocolate in their hand.

After further investigation, I realized that the phrase “pimp up” is just taking something to another level, and I am always here for that.

In particular, we pimped up our hot chocolate, which led to the making of this easy spiked hot chocolate recipe.

Seriously, How Do You Pimp Up Hot Chocolate?

Okay, I did all that talking but still did not answer the question yet. So, here are ways that you can pimp up your hot chocolate.

What I like to do is add whip cream on top of my beverage. Also, I like a little liquor in my drink from time to time.

Additionally, marshmallows are great to use as well, and we can’t forget about the spices that will take your drink up a notch.

Is hot chocolate Healthy?

I will just say this. This recipe is fantastic, however, I can’t lie to my audience and say something is healthy when it is not.

Granted there are health benefits that come from cocoa powder, but with all the sugar in hot chocolate, you would be better off avoiding it if you are on a diet.

Now, when that diet is over the easy spiked hot chocolate recipe will be waiting for you. That creamy and chocolate goodness will be so delightful on your taste buds.
