jolly hot cocoa

Inspired by Half Baked Harvest

makes approximately 5 cups/40 ounces

1 can lite coconut milk (approx. 13 ounces)
1 can regular coconut milk (approx. 13 ounces)
1/2 cup heavy cream
6 ounces good quality dark chocolate, chopped coarsely (I used scharffen berger)
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch of salt
seeds of 1 vanilla bean, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 ounces Bailey’s or Kahlua (optional)
toppings (optional): Dahlia Kitchen’s vanilla bean marshmallows or whipped cream

In medium pot, bring both types of coconut milk and heavy cream to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk nearly continuously to prevent burning.

Once your milk begins to simmer, remove from heat and vigorously whisk in dark chocolate until fully melted.

When chocolate is fully incorporated, add cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and vanilla. If using, pour Bailey’s or Kahlua in last. Serve in a festive mug, of course!

To reheat, put pot back on stove and turn on low. OR, try this chilled! It is delicious!
