Yummy-I used hot cocoa packets that take water instead of milk and then put in the shots of schnapps. What a delicious drink.

I loved it and so did my husband, it's a bit on the sweet side though and really rich if you use milk so go with the water. It doesn't taste like alchohol at all, it's really nice.

This hot drink is one of my favorites! VERY easy to make and VERY good for sipping on cold nights. It's rated an overall 4 because the alcohol in the drink is not kid friendly. Otherwise, it would've rated a 5!

Perfect combination! I love chocolate and caramel together. I make my hot chocolate using 1 tbsp cocoa, 2 tbsp Splenda or sugar, and a mug of skim lactose-free milk. The schnapps make it so sweet and satisfying... great idea.
