On the second day of Christmas…

my true love gave to me…another adult beverage!  My true love still can’t rhyme.  And my true love might think I’m a saucy lush.  But that’s OK, because being a saucy lush at the holidays is delicious!

But first, can we talk about this:

Because it sounds absolutely disgusting.   So of course I bought it.  And you know what?  It IS disgusting!  Hooray for having fabulous instincts!

This, however, is not disgusting.

And this tasty beverage I actually made from scratch.  Here’s a picture of milk in a saucepan to prove it.

You’re convinced, right?  Good…so anyway.

Once again, the brilliance of Chubby Bunny‘s creativity makes me look smart.  Or clever.  Or something.  Or it makes me want hot booze chocolate.  Chocolate + peppermint + marshmallow.  Red velvet hot chocolate was the obvious choice.

Just in case peppermint marshmallows dipped in dark chocolate and hot chocolate aren’t enough of a sugar rush for you, I highly recommend dunking the holiday Jo-Jos (the best thing about Christmas at Trader Joe’s) into the magic beverage.  You’ll be bouncing off the walls, but that’s ok, the booze will temper that in a couple of minutes.

So, you should make this.  Put booze in it or don’t, it’s delicious either way.  But you should definitely put the marshmallows on it.

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

2. Add a splash of water and sugar, and chocolate chips, constantly stirring gently.
