For Day 13 of Boozy Advent, I made Baileys Hot Cocoa. If you need a Winter warmup, this drink is it.
This was as easy as making our preferred hot cocoa and adding the mini bottle of Baileys to it. One of us likes marshmallows on top (either the Trader Joe’s marshmallows or Dandies which are very similar, hmm…) and the other likes whipped cream. Lately we have had the canned coconut whipped cream from Trader Joe’s in the refrigerator. I am aware using a non-dairy whipped cream on top of a dairy hot cocoa with a dairy alcohol in it is odd, but the coconut whipped cream is really nice. The flavor is not very coconut-like and the weight is perfect to sit atop a hot beverage.
Did anyone else hear Sheldon Cooper’s voice when reading hot beverage? “Social protocol states when a friend is upset, you offer them a hot beverage…” Hopefully you aren’t upset but will still enjoy a warm beverage.
