Tropical Rum flavored Hot Chocolate for a Cold Evening and other favorite Hot Chocolate recipes.

I have an amazing recipe for Hot Chocolate and I'll repost it at the end of this one and a Homemade Cappuccino Drink Mix.
This one is also incredible.

1 can (13.5oz.) Coconut Milk
1 can (14oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 C Dark Chocolate unsweetened Cocoa Powder
a Pinch of Salt
3/4 C Pineapple Juice
3/4 C Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
4 C Water
In a  large saucepan on medium heat:
Coconut Milk\Sweetened Condensed Milk
Cocoa Powder
Pineapple Juice
Simmer, do not boil.
Whisk in Rum and Water and heat until desired temperature. Whisking often.
Serve in mugs and top with Whipped Cream.

Whipped Cream:
1 C Very Cold Heavy Cream
3 TBS Granulated Sugar
3 TBS Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
Beat cream until soft peak. Add Sugar and rum and continue beating well.
Refrigerate until ready to prepare the drinks.

Peace in the Kitchen!

It's cold, rainy and dreary outside. We may even get sleet or ice. It's the perfect time for Hot Cocoa.
We always have home made hot cocoa in the pantry. Today my wife found these miniature marshmallows, perfect for a mug of Hot Cocoa. It's Hot Cocoa time!
Previously I posted a recipe for Home Made Hot Chocolate. I'll re post it at the end of this post. I also re posted my Home Made Cappuccino Drink.

Home Made Hot Chocolate:
This is our favorite Hot Chocolate Drink!

3 C Whole Milk
3 C Half and Half

Heat to simmer

Add 2 C Chocolate Chips ( I prefer Ghirardelli)
Stir until the Chocolate melts
Add 2 TBS Vanilla
(if you want to kick it up a notch and make it Tex - Mex, add 1/8tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper)!

Serve Hot!

Peace in the Kitchen!

This makes a hot, instant, Homemade Cappuccino drink.

2 C non dairy coffee creamer
1 C instant dry milk
1 1/2 TBS Chocolate Nesquik
2/3 C instant coffee ( I use Medaglia D'Oro instant espresso) ( Folger's or Nescafe)
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C Confectioner's sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
a dash of vanilla

Mix all but the vanilla
Store in a sealed container

Use 3 rounded TBS of the mix per cup of hot water
Add a dash of Vanilla to each cup of Cappuccino.

Peace in the Kitchen!
