Spiked Hot Cocoa

Hands-On Time: 5min
Ready In: 10min
Yield: 2

This hot cocoa is decidedly a grown-up version, but by simply omitting the liquor, you can make it kid-friendly too. For a special touch, I like to toast the marshmallow topping with a mini kitchen torch, but they can be easily toasted under the broiler if you have oven-proof mugs. To serve a crowd the recipe can be doubled, tripled or more.



  1. Finely chop the chocolate and add to the milk. Stir in the sugar and cook for 15 minutes, or until the sugar is completely dissolved and the chocolate is melted. Do not boil.
  2. Divided the kahlua equally between two large mugs. Pour the chocolate mixture into the mugs and stir to combine. Top with marshmallows and toast with a mini-torch or place under the broiler for 30 seconds, if desired. As an alternative (if you don't have a torch or oven-proof mugs), you can broil the marshmallows separately on a greased pan for 30 seconds, then place them on top of the cocoa. Serve immediately.
