About this Recipe
It’s Christmas time and I need all the comfort I can get! This white-hot chocolate drink is sweet, comforting and creamy. It can be served with gingerbread men, cookies or a Christmas log.
I added Baileys to this drink because it is my favorite Irish cream. It is sweet, creamy, chocolatey and includes Irish whiskey and spirits. These flavors go perfectly with the white-hot chocolate and make the perfect indulgent, boozy, festive Christmas drink!
