One of the perks of being an adult is that it’s socially acceptable to add booze to your hot chocolate. Use any kind of high-quality milk chocolate bar that you prefer. Add Bailey’s for an extra creamy, wintery boost of flavor or dabble in more sophisticated spirits like Amaretto -- an almond-flavored liqueur -- or bourbon.



  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 2 Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar
  • 1 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 177 ml Original Irish Cream


1 Over low heat, warm the milk until small bubbles form but before the milk begins boiling. Be sure to not scald the milk or it won't have the best flavor.
2 Then add salt, cocoa, chocolate, and stir in until melted and combined.
3 Turn off heat and stir in Bailey's Irish Cream (or Amaretto or another liqueur of your choice)
4 Divide into 4 servings and serve.
