One Hot Mama

"This is an adult hot cocoa recipe. It's creamy and makes a great after dinner drink, or make it on a cold night to really warm you from the inside. My DH calls this my signature drink."

  1. What a great signature drink this is V. Wow, just perfect for this cold wet dreary day. This is a big ray of sunshine, inside and out. What a delicious treat, the cocoa was sweet, smooth, silky, warming and oh so flavorful. I used Grialldi Hazlenut Cocoa nice and dark and Vanilla Vodka, this was a perfect balancing for the lovely butterscotch schnapps and Baileys. Yum, I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing.
  2. A lovely before bed drink, you'll sleep well after this one, I did! :lol:
  3. Oh! I really liked this. It was really smooth and tasty. Great after dinner drink.
  4. Smooth, creamy and delicious. Nice way to top off dinner and relax on a cold night. Thanks V!
  5. The taste is great but for me there's too much baileys and it's too sweet. And my cocoa mix what without sugar. Maybe I would add more vodka, less butterscotch. Or maybe that just confirm that I'm a coffee drinker ;) Thanks V :)


I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort...
