Hot Chocolate with rum

Hot Chocolate with rum

Rum & Spice is Nice, this is what we call it

This lovely Rum Hot Chocolate is so so lovely – NICE !  Just look at it – so warming & so comforting and its super simple to make 

This recipe has a splash of run and a hit of allspice – rum with spice is nice! 

Don’t worry if you don’t have allspice, you could use nutmeg or cinnamon instead, or both! 

What to serve with your hot chocolate 

In fact its’ more than nice it’s absolutely AMAZING and goes beautifully with Ben’s Biscotti

Biscotti are the perfect biscuits to dip in hot chocolate. They are baked very hard at first. However when submerged in this delightful alcoholic hot chocolate, it simply takes them to another level – I promise 

They are totally made for each other.

Rum & Spice is Nice

According to Wiki:

Hot chocolate, also known as drinking chocolate, cocoa, and as chocolate tea in Nigeria, is a heated drink consisting of shaved chocolate, melted chocolate or cocoa powder, heated milk or water, and usually a sweetener.

Hot chocolate may be topped with whipped cream.

What isn’t nicer and more yummy than a yummy chocolate drink with a splash of rum and spice?!

Warms you up let me tell you on a cold day

  • Mug of milk (250ml ish)
  • 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of Allspice powder (or pinch of each of nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger powder)
  • 1 or 2 teaspoons of dark rum ( I use Captain Morgan)
  • Whipped cream

Preparation Method

  1. Heat milk in pan
  2. Take off heat and whisk in cocoa – you can do a paste first but I don’t bother as it will dissolve if you just whisk it
  3. Stir in Allspice, Sugar and Rum
  4. Pour into mug
  5. Top with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder or chocolate curls
  6. Grab biscotti and DUNK
