Looking for something to enhance the average cup of hot chocolate? This recipe is one that will certainly help you in that mission. It adds triple shot of espresso (via Three Olives Vodka) with a touch of amaretto that creates layers to the average hot cocoa and is perfect for a winter evening warming sipper filled with chocolate.

My advice is to skip the powdered hot chocolate mixes and start from scratch. This hot cocoa recipe is a good place to start, and this Oaxaca Chakas recipe has tips for using the spicy Mexican chocolate rounds.
