Grownups' Mocha Hot Chocolate

This is a grownup's kind of hot chocolate, full of cream and whiskey and other good things. It's great on ice or heated. At Christmas, we all walked out to my dad's pole barn, which used to house his collection of antique tractors, but now holds all his O-scale train tracks. I think we all become kids again when we play with his trains.

This was perfect for sipping by my parent's wood stove after we walked back through the woods and shook off the snow.


1 cup light cream
1 (14 oz.) can evaporated milk
3 tsp instant coffee
1/2 cup chocolate syrup

1 2/3 cups of Irish Whiskey
1 tsp almond extract
Marshmallows (optional)


In a medium saucepan, heat the cream and evaporated milk until hot but not bubbly. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Pour into four mugs. Sprinkle with marshmallows, if desired.

Makes 4.

I will definitely substitute unsweetened coca powder and sugar for chocolate syrup-- anyone know how much?

I have used a ratio of 3 tbsp cocoa powder, 3 tbsp sugar, and 3 tbsp water or milk as a substitution in some recipes. You can make it less sweet by mixing you own. Hope it works for you too!
