Easy Amaretto Hot Chocolate



– 1 c. whole milk – 3 Tbsp. semi-sweet chocolate chips – 1 Tbsp. sugar – pinch/grind of salt – 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract – 1 oz. shot, Amaretto liqueur


Step 1

To a medium sauce pan, add the chocolate chips, sugar, salt and milk.

Step 2

Heat over medium-low heat. Using a whisk, stir often to help the sugar dissolve.

Step 3

Continue whisking until the chocolate melts completely and the mixture comes to a low simmer. NOTE: Do NOT let it rapidly boil, as the milk and chocolate will burn to the bottom of the pan. Once liquid comes to a low simmer, promptly remove from heat. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.

Step 4

Ladle or pour hot chocolate into a mug and top with the amaretto liqueur.

Step 5

Stir to combine and top with your favorite hot chocolate toppings. Enjoy right away while hot.
