  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the chocolate chips and half-and-half over low heat and bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Simmer for 1 minute or until the mixture thickens slightly.
  2. Remove from the heat; whisk in the liqueur and vanilla. Pour into four 1/2-cup demitasse or coffee cups. Top each serving with whipped cream and dust with cocoa. Serve immediately.

Footnotes

  • Instead of flavoring your hot chocolate with amaretto as this recipe calls for, use 1 tablespoon hazelnut, coffee, or orange liqueur, or peppermint schnapps, or 1.2 teaspoon almond or peppermint extract.

very good I used Grand Marnier

This was lovely. I used fat free evaporated milk and I doubled the amaretto for a bigger kick. I did not make the whipped cream for the top. Excellent grownup winter cocktail.

I made this the lazy way, with instant hot chocolate. Just added a TBSP or so of amaretto. Yum-O!!!
