The snow is falling, and you are home in your slippers watching. Or maybe you have just come in from snow shoeing or shoveling. Now it's time for a treat- a warm chocolaty boozy concoction.

It's Cocktail Time!


Bourbon Hot Chocolate

¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup chocolate chips
½ cup sugar
¼ tsp chili powder
2 cups whole milk
3 fl. oz. bourbon
whipped cream for topping

Add the cocoa, chocolate chips, sugar, chili powder, and milk to a small saucepan. Heat over medium high, whisking constantly to dissolve the cocoa and melt the chips. Bring the hot chocolate to a simmer, then remove from heat. Add the bourbon, and divide the hot chocolate between two mugs. Top with whipped cream. Enjoy!

Cabernet Hot Chocolate

1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup Cabernet Sauvignon
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk and chocolate chips. Whisking constantly until chocolate is melted into milk and you have a thick and creamy chocolate milk. Pour in the Cabernet and heat until everything is hot. Pour into 2 mugs- top with whipped cream.

1 cup heavy cream
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 graham cracker, crushed
1 tbsp simple syrup
¼ cup chocolate syrup

2 oz. Heritage Hills honey Bourbon

Add milk and heavy cream to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Meanwhile, add chocolate chips to a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave on 30-second intervals until melted, stirring between each one. Dip the rim of your mugs in the chocolate and then dip them in the crushed graham cracker and set aside. Add remaining melted chocolate to milk and cream along with the simple syrup, and chocolate syrup and whisk together. Whisk in the pudding mix little by little until fully combined. Bring mixture to a low simmer and remove from heat. Whisk in the honey bourbon and pour into prepared mugs. Top with marshmallows or marshmallow fluff
