Adult Hot Chocolate


I know that I’ve already warmed you up with hot chocolate on a stick and peanut butter hot chocolate, but given this weekend’s bout of dreary, rainy weather I found myself in need of  another warm chocolatey drink.

An “adult drink,” if you know what I mean.

And let’s class it up a little bit, as much as I love my penguin cups, it felt wrong to drink an alcoholic beverage out of something so cute.  The solution?  A martini glass, of course.  Even though this isn’t a martini in any way, shape, or form (well, aside from that it contains alcohol), I thought it was a nice touch.  (Last time I used them was for Easter, so I felt their time had come)

You know, the kind of classy touch that a girl needs when she’s drinking an adult beverage alone in her pajamas watching the rain (or snow) fall outside.

Don’t judge.

It’s not really a “recipe”, you can just grab some hot chocolate, and pour some “marshmallow fluff”-flavored alcohol in it until it’s to your liking.  You can make it as strong or as weak as you like (the recipe is easy enough that you can keep making them, even after you’ve had a few).

And, of course, it wouldn’t be hot chocolate without a marshmallow on top.
