Amaretto Hot Chocolate

This drink all came about back when I was making my slow cooker hot chocolate a few weeks back.  I was looking in our alcohol cabinet to see what I could add to it to make it even more exciting when I saw a bottle without a label in the back corner.  When I pulled it out, I remembered that it was a bottle of homemade amaretto and I got so excited.  Amaretto is a favorite liqueur of mine and I just knew that it would taste AMAZING in a hot chocolate! What’s not to love about combining the flavors of a hot chocolate and almonds?! I’ve tried it in both a normal hot chocolate and a white hot chocolate and it was amazing in both!

Common Questions About Making Amaretto Hot Chocolate

What is amaretto?

Amaretto is an alcohol traditionally made from almonds.  It is a great addition to a wide range of drinks from hot chocolate to eggnog.

Can I use white chocolate instead?

Of course! Directly substitute in white chocolate for the regular chocolate.

What can I top this drink with?

I usually top amaretto hot chocolate with homemade whipped cream, almonds, and salted caramel sauce but it’s totally up to you what you want on top.

How can I make hot chocolate even better?

Some easy ways to make your hot chocolate to the next level include substituting in heavy whipping cream or half-and-half for some of the milk to make it even creamier or upgrading your chocolate chips to nicer ones like ghirardelli.
