RumChata Hot Chocolate
Do you crave hot chocolate the moment it starts to snow in your area? We have been getting snow on and off in Spokane which means it is time for all the hot chocolate!
Depending on the day we will whip up our favorite hot cocoa recipe or whip up some boxed mix in a few minutes. It all depends on how much time we want to spend.
Adding a shot of RumChata to hot chocolate makes it the perfect winter adult hot chocolate. The spiced rum cream flavor is amazing and tastes amazing when mixed with the hot cocoa.
I was looking at cabins in the woods today trying to decide if we should take a long weekend and just relax for a few days. I love the idea of getting away with some great books, fun movies, and no plans.
I might even enjoy watching the snow fall and not having to stress about making sure the driveway and walkway are cleaned off quickly.
This is one of our favorite RumChata Christmas Drinks! So easy to make and it tastes amazing!

PLEASE use milk to prepare your hot chocolate! I know the box mixes say they can be made with water but for this RumChata 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 guests add in the RumChata.
You can adapt the amount of RumChata in your cocktail based on how strong you want the drink to be.
