Triple Chocolate Amaretto Hot Cocoa Recipe

I am a chocoholic, if you read my blog you know. It is my one major indulgence.

So now that it's getting colder, I wanted to post a hot cocoa recipe, but turn it up a notch. First, I added some amaretto to make it a little more "grownup." Then I put homemade chocolate whipped cream on top and finished it off with shaved dark chocolate, hence the triple threat. (I also added a few almond slivers and coconut shreds to give it texture.) One word... decadent!

I'm so into hot cocoa bars this year because they're warm, tasty, inexpensive, and best of all... unexpected. Stealing from the traditional ice cream bar idea, a hot cocoa bar is where you set out cups of hot cocoa (or a carafe) and a selection of toppings and let your guests go to town.

For kids, I recommend putting out a variety of candy toppings (flavored marshmallows, crushed peppermint, M&Ms, etc.), and for adults, you can kick it up a notch by putting out some delicious liqueurs. Take a look at some of these fantastic ideas we've seen.
