Chocolate Covered Almond Hot Chocolate Drink

Chocolate Covered Almond Hot Drink

This month we present The Chocolate Covered Almond Hot Drink Recipe in our Coffee & Other Hot Drink Recipe Series.

Now that the holidays are behind us, it is officially Winter!  This time of year I remember my younger days being bundled up and sleigh riding down the big hill behind Wenonah Elementary School.  There was also a pond where we would ice skate as the temperatures dropped.  After a long day battling the cold, with our cheeks and noses bright red, we would venture home with the sunset and Mom would have a steaming cup of hot chocolate waiting for us with a thick layer of whipped cream on top.  Yum.

How lucky we are to have the seasons change for us the way they do here in New York.  We get the best of everything year round.  So instead of feeling the post-holiday blues, let’s celebrate our Winter Wonderland with a Chocolate Covered Almond and get that hot chocolate flowing…but now that we’re older, we get to add the good stuff to it!!  Just like Mom used to make…and then some!!

 

The Chocolate Covered Almond

  • 1 oz. Stoli Vanilla Vodka
  • 1 oz. Amaretto Liqueur
  • Hot Chocolate to fill
  • Fresh Whipped Cream Top

 

This one is incredibly simple but packed with great flavors!  You can even change out the Stoli Vanilla for Coconut Rum to make things even more interesting!  Enjoy!!!!
