Easy Kahlua Hot Chocolate is the winter cocktail you have been dreaming about! So easy to make and it tastes amazing! This Kahlua and Hot Chocolate Recipe can be made with homemade hot cocoa or a boxed mix.
Kahlua Hot Chocolate
We are taking a break from eggnog recipes to share this hot chocolate with Kahlua recipe.
The combination of Kahlua and Hot Cocoa is a winter cocktail dream. Flavors of chocolate, coffee liqueur, and cream make me happy.
It has been snowing a lot this week. Every time I shovel the driveway I dream of this hot chocolate waiting for me inside. I am pretty sure a white Christmas will not be a problem this year with the way the forecast looks.
We plan on relaxing and having a low-key holiday. Good food, fun Christmas cocktails, and no stress are our big goals for the holiday. Are you doing anything fun for Christmas?
There are only a few Kahlua Hot Chocolate ingredients needed to make this epic hot drink.
- Hot Chocolate Mix
Garnish - Whipped cream, chocolate covered espresso bean, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, caramel sauce, chocolate syrup, or a chocolate drizzle. You can also add a dusting of cocoa powder to the whipped cream.
Hot Chocolate Mix - we use an easy hot chocolate mix for this recipe but you can easily make homemade hot chocolate. We used milk chocolate hot cocoa mix but you could easily use a flavored hot chocolate.
To make a Mexican Hot chocolate with Kahlua you will need Mexican Hot Chocolate tablets and a few cinnamon sticks for garnish.
For a fun garnish check out our Baileys Whipped Cream.
How to make Kahlua Hot Chocolate
Add milk to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until warm.
Remove from heat and combine milk with hot chocolate mix. Stir together. Add in Kahlua Coffee Liqueur and stir together.
Pour into mugs, top with whipped cream and enjoy.
PLEASE use milk to prepare your hot chocolate! I know the box mixes say they can be made with water but for this Kahlua 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 Kahlua.
You can adapt the amount of Kahlua in your cocktail based on how strong you want the drink to be.
