Chocolate cream liqueur is a delightful holiday treat that can be sipped plain or used like Irish Cream in your recipes. You can omit the alcohol for an amazing hot chocolate for the kids.
It’s been too long since my last post. I went to Cambodia and had no oven so no way to bake.
While I was away, my house flooded and I’ve been dealing with insurance and contractors since August.
I’ve been cooking but it’s been hard to get things photographed and find time to write posts. So I’ll be featuring some simple recipes to get us going again.
A few years ago I picked up an old Better Homes and Gardens Chocolate cookbook from a used bookstore. I’ve been meaning to make some of the recipes in it for some time.
This recipe looked simple enough to make in a kitchen with limited supplies. And, homemade liqueurs make wonderful gifts.
The original recipe was flavored with a little chocolate extract. I decided to intensify the chocolate flavor by using cocoa powder instead. After all, you can never have enough chocolate, right?
You cook everything on the stove before you add the alcohol. So if you want an amazingly thick, decadent hot chocolate, you can serve up the hot chocolate before adding the alcohol. You could also add the alcohol while this is hot and serve it as an adult hot chocolate.
This chocolate cream liqueur is potent. A little goes a long way. You’ll have plenty to share with friends or to drizzle on holiday cakes.
