Hot Chocolate…

Oh man you guys I am really feeling the rush of the holiday right now. There are only 5 days left to Christmas!!! Santa is coming!!!! So I feel like I still have so much to do and very little time before we leave on Friday to go to my parents house in Cleveland. While I am super excited to be with my family, I am really feeling the pressure of getting things done before the end of the year. Did I also mention it finally got cold here and feels like winter? I personally like the cold and the snow. Saturday was the first real snow fall and it was so pretty. It feels like winter is truly here. Most of all I do not like the wind. When it’s in the 20s and the wind blows it feels like below 0 and that is just brutal. Other than the wind I really enjoy the winter!

So with it being so cold a cup of hot chocolate is absolutely necessary, and it’s even better when there is booze in it! I love adding a little bit of booze to the hot chocolate to give it a little extra flavor. It also helps with staying warm so it’s a winner in my book. This recipe is super easy and quick to make. As long as you can turn a stove on and heat milk you are golden. Enjoy and stay warm!
