This is delicious. I have found by experience that using a strong good-quality cocoa is best when you want to add other flavors to your cocoa. And don't try to go low-fat. :) Yummy.

I made a batch of Ultra-Rich Hot Chocolate, and then added the peppermint schnapps. Great adult hot hot chocolate...what can I say? Made for a blissful night's sleep.

What a treat! I just used an individual packet of hot chocolate mix & it still tasted decadent!! The ratio of cocoa to schnapps was perfect - couldn't taste the alcohol at all (a little dangerous, I guess). I had one before bed & slept soundly!!
