Rich and decadent Coconut Rum Hot Cocoa made from milk, half and half, chocolate, and coconut rum will warm your belly and put a smile on your face!
It is definitely cold and chilly in the Pacific Northwest where I live. I don’t usually get chilled just from cold temperatures. It’s the rain plus the cold that shivers me to my core. When it’s cold and stormy outside, sometimes the one thing that sounds the best is a hot drink. Add a splash of booze and not only do you have delicious homemade hot cocoa, you have a hot delicious drink with just the right amount of wow to really make you smile.

When I was a kid, the only hot chocolate I knew was the powdered pouch where you just add water. Heck – I used to eat that stuff dry! Now, the taste of instant hot chocolate is pretty awful. Now I definitely feel its worth it to invest a few extra minutes and some higher quality ingredients to have a rich homemade cup of hot chocolate. I’m happy to say it tastes nothing like the instant kind and probably packs a lot more calories and fat – so worth it, my friends.
Homemade rich hot cocoa will put a smile on anyone’s face, but add that splash (or in my case, a hefty pour) of coconut rum and all things become right in the world. Ever eat a Mounds or Almond Joy candy bar? It tastes like that, only better. When I drank this hot chocolate, I didn’t taste any booze. I only tasted chocolate coconut heaven. If you haven’t tried making your own homemade hot cocoa or adding coconut rum to your drink, you now have something new to try tonight!
