How to make hot chocolate with Baileys

In the sauce pan, combine milk, cocoa and dark chocolate. Stir with a whisk until the chocolate has melted. This only takes a few minutes and I highly recommend stirring the milk constantly.

When ready, turn off the heat and stir in Baileys.

Taste it and add sugar to your taste. I used only a little because I knew I would be topping it with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. If you like your hot chocolate on the sweet side, definitely add more sugar.

Tips for making Baileys hot chocolate

  • I used dark chocolate with 70% cocoa content. If you don’t like it or don’t have it on hand, you can omit it or use semisweet chocolate instead.
  • Instead of sugar, honey can be added to sweeten this hot chocolate.
  • Whipped cream, chocolate sauce and chocolate shavings completely optional. They add an extra richness to this Baileys hot chocolate, but it will still taste good without them. You can also top it with some marshmallows, if you like.

Note: The nutrition information does not include the optional toppings.
