Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk preferably whole milk or 2%
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Bailey's Vanilla Cinnamon Irish Cream or more to taste
  • Optional toppings: whipped cream marshmallows, and/or chocolate sauce

Instructions

  • Place milk, cocoa powder, sugar, chocolate chips, and cinnamon in a saucepan set over medium heat. Whisk frequently until the cocoa powder and sugar have dissolved, the chocolate chips have melted, and the mixture is hot (do not boil). Add the Bailey's and vanilla extract and stir until heated through. Transfer to mugs and serve immediately. Top with whipped cream, marshmallows, or chocolate sauce, if desired.

Notes

You could also add a splash of strong hot coffee to the hot chocolate.
