WOW! Did as others have suggested, adding whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg - WOW! My new special indulgence!

Very yummy! I substituted the Irish Cream liquor for Irish Cream liquid coffee creamer and Splenda instead of granulated sugar and it was to die for! Top it off with a dallop of whipped cream.

A nightcap for the kids (without the Irish Cream ) and one for the adults! We made it for the first time today but we will be making this again and again and again...

GREAT chocolate drink--I've been looking for a good chocolate drink with Irish Cream and this one was perfect. I made a big batch (for a party) using a ratio of one hot chocolate packet (dark Swiss Miss) to every 3/4 cup milk and 1 TB Irish Cream. Blended it then topped each glass with whipped cream. YUM! It was a huge hit. Thanks :D

Very good. I did add just a tad more Bailey's :)

Delicious. I put 2 Tablespoons Irish Cream ( long day) and used splenda instead of sugar and fat free milk. Totally justified.

This tasted amazing. There is so little Irish cream in it, that it more just flavors the hot chocolate like a creamer. I used low fat milk and 1/2 packet of Truvia for the sugar. I just used the microwave to heat up the milk and water. I topped it with some sprayed whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I might just whisk the milk up, next time with the Aerolatte, to thicken it up a little. I can see an Irish cream dairy creamer being a fine subtitute for this. This makes a nice evening hot chocolate, though. TY

The perfect hot chocolate on a cold day.
