BLOGMAS day 9: Home made hot chocolate (and the cutest festive mug to drink it in)

At this time of year I love making my own hot chocolate, which usually has a lil’ extra kick to it, so thought I’d share one of my favourite recipes. Really easy, pretty quick and very tasty!

Spiked peanut butter hot chocolate:

50g milk chocolate

200ml milk

70mls Marks & Spencer Chocolate & Peanut cream liqueur


Whipped cream

1. Place a small pan on medium heat and add the chocolate milk. Stir gently and continuously until the chocolate melts and the milk is a smooth brown colour.

2. Add in the liqueur and continue to stir until all the liquid looks blended together.

3. Drop in a few marshmallows and allow them to melt a little.

4. Remove from heat and serve in a cute AF mug. Decorate with whipped cream and a sprinkling of marshmallows.


This recipe has a ‘make it up as you go along’ vibe so you can sub out ingredients to suit your own preference. My top swaps for this recipe are:

– Chocolate: using dark chocolate will add more depth of flavour, whereas white chocolate will make your drink creamier.

– Alcohol: dark rum, Irish cream and whisky all work well with chocolate. With dark chocolate you could even add a small amount of red wine (yes, really!)

– Decoration: for extra sass add a mini flake, chocolate sprinkles or edible glitter.

And of course, a super cute festive mug to serve your chosen creation in! I bought a pair of these from Primark for me and the Mr to use throughout December.

If you have a good recipe of try out a variation of mine please do let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading,
