spiked cocoa

Tis’ the season for all things holiday! Whether you’re throwing a huge bash this season, having a few friends over for a cookie exchange, or perhaps you’re hosting this month’s book club, nothing will make your shindig more festive than a tasty cup of hot cocoa. Well, nothing expect maybe a few sweet toppings and/or libations to spike said cocoa!

Throwing a get together, should be fun, but not too much work. After all, you want to enjoy your own party as well, right?! Set out pre-made cocoa and different toppings for your guests to create their own concoctions.

The combinations for a spiked hot cocoa are endless, but today I’m sharing a personal fave of mine: Hot Cocoa with Peppermint Schnapps.
