Amaretto Hot Chocolate

The recipe for this hot cocoa is very simple, and WAY better than any store-bought, powdered mix.  It’s made with whole milk, along with semi-sweet chocolate making a very rich, creamy texture.  You can also use a lower fat milk, however, I’ve discovered that whole milk is the best option if you want a creamier cup of cocoa.  Additionally, you can also use dark chocolate or milk chocolate chips, if you prefer the flavor to those instead of the semi-sweet.

  • 3 c. whole milk
  • 2/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • pinch/grind of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 oz. Amaretto Liquor (1 oz. per glass)
  • Toppings:
  • Whipped Cream/Whipped Topping
  • Slivered Almonds
  • Chocolate Shavings
  1. In a medium sauce pan, add the milk, chocolate chips, sugar and salt. Heat on medium low heat, whisking often. Continue to whisk until the chocolate melts completely and the mixture comes to a low simmer. (Do NOT let boil, as it will burn to the bottom of the pan.) Once liquid comes to a low simmer, promptly remove from heat. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.
  2. Ladle the hot chocolate into 3 mugs, and add 1 oz. Amaretto liquor to each glass. Stir to combine. Top with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
This hot chocolate is wonderful after a long day, or after coming in from the cold.  Enjoy with your favorite biscotti, or cookies.
Stay warm, everyone!  Cheers!
