If you live, or know anyone who lives, in New England, you understand that winters can range anywhere from chilly to down-right frigid! Unfortunately, this weekend has turned into the latter! After a healthy amount of snow, temperatures dropped to the single-digits!! Add in the infamous wind chill and we’re talking subzero temps! That’s right, it’s definitely turned into a sweatpants-wearing, blanket-snuggling, hot cocktail-drinking kind of day!

To celebrate being inside, I’ve come up with a delicious hot chocolate-based cocktail you can sip while you watch your favorite movie (or if you’re me, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and listen to the gentle hum of snow-plows outside.

Step 1: Mmmmm... Chocolate!

This drink is seriously delicious! The mixture of salted-caramel Kahlua and hot chocolate is almost sinful! You can drink it as a dessert or whenever you need some added warmth during the winter months. If you really want to kick it up an extra notch, rim the glass with your favorite chocolate ganache (hot fudge and chocolate syrup also work) and top with a dollop of whipped cream! Excuse me while I go make another!

Step 2: “Snowed In:” the Recipe

  • 1 cup hot chocolate*
  • 1.5 oz. Kahlua Salted Caramel
  • 1 oz. Dark Rum
  • Chocolate Ganache or Hot Fudge for rim (optional)
  • Whipped topping (optional)

*I made the hot chocolate with milk for extra richness (to me hot chocolate made with milk is like a warm hug…it just can’t be beat)

  1. Make hot chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl or cup and set aside
  2. If adding a chocolate rim to the glass do that now before adding any ingredients
  3. Add Kahlua and Rum to the glass
  4. Pour hot chocolate on top and stir
  5. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!

Step 3: Enjoy It!
