Boozy Decadent Hot Chocolate – pure indulgence!

Boozy Hot Chocolate with Baileys Chocolat Luxe & Marshmallows, espresso cups

Boozy Decadent Hot Chocolate

Today I’m bringing you Boozy Decadent Hot Chocolate. I know it’s supposed to be spring but right now it feels more like winter in our house and it’s not unusual for there to be the odd flurry of snow in April! So if you’re feeling the chill like me then this creamy hot chocolate made with dark chocolate and a touch of Baileys Chocolat Luxe is just the thing to warm you up and put a smile on your face. I topped my hot chocolate with mini marshmallows which go beautifully molten and are a joy to eat with a teaspoon at the end but you could also top with whipped cream and grated chocolate.

I based this recipe on Decadent Hot Chocolate from Isabella King of Coriander Queen. Isabella said she didn’t really do tea or coffee and most hot chocolate was too milky to her taste. However she discovered a chocolate shop where they sold hot chocolate that was more like shots so she recreated it at home. Isabella sadly passed away in March aged just 29 so myself and fellow food bloggers are paying tribute to Isabella today by recreating or adapting some of her recipes as a way of celebrating her life. Isabella was an extremely talented and friendly food blogger in our close knit cyber community. The things I remember most about Isabella were her happy smiling face in her knitted hat and her beautifully piped cupcakes.

I hope Isabella would approve of my Boozy Decadent Hot Chocolate as she was partial to the odd cocktail recipe over on Coriander Queen. Raising an espresso cup to you Isabella, you’ve left us with so many inspiring and wonderful recipes, it was a pleasure knowing you. Thank you….
