With homemade hot chocolate, you can control the sweetness and indulgent chocolate levels to taste – the boxed mix is always a little too strong for me. But the best part about the homemade version is the Kahlúa! Yes, this is strictly an “adults only” drink. Just add a splash of Kahlúa to your piping hot chocolate and you’ll have a cozy, grown-up hot chocolate. And you can’t forget about those marshmallows slathered in salted caramel and a drizzle of melted chocolate. I mean, that’s the only way to have hot chocolate, right?
And with the holidays right around the corner, you could even gift this to friends and family. Simply combine the dry ingredients and throw them into a cute jar with a ribbon and you’re set. It doesn’t get easier, or cheaper, than that!
