Baileys Hot Chocolate

I am all in for hot chocolate this year. This week we are due to have temperatures below zero plus on and off snow. I stocked up on hopefully everything we might need so I don't have to spend a ton of time getting life essentials.
One of the essentials I stocked up on was a ton of hot chocolate. I am going to try a whole bunch of different mixes to see which ones we love the most. I may even work on a hot chocolate bar idea that would be fun for a winter party.
It all depends on how distracted I get trying to stay warm and cuddling with the cats. LOL!

How to make Baileys Hot Chocolate
There are a few ways you can make Irish Cream and Hot Chocolate. We went with the quick and easy way for this recipe using a dry mix and milk.
The other option is to make stovetop homemade hot chocolate with cocoa powder, sugar, water, and milk.
It really is up to you and how much time you want to spend making the hot chocolate. Just make sure to stir in Baileys once hot chocolate is prepared.
PLEASE use milk to prepare your hot chocolate! I know the box mixes say they can be made with water but for this Baileys Hot Cocoa recipe you really want to use milk. It will mix together better and taste better.
If you are serving a large group you can easily make a large quantity of hot cocoa and have guest add in the Baileys
You can adapt the amount of Irish Cream Liqueur in your cocktail based on how strong you want the drink to be.
