Make Some Adult Hot Chocolate You Won’t Want to Share With Your Kids

Make Some Adults Only Hot Chocolate by CoffeeForLess

Hot chocolate can be a great family time treat, especially when it’s cold outside. But sometimes you want to add a little element of danger to this time-honored tradition, turning kid’s cocoa into something special, like adult hot chocolate. This looks like a job for… coffee and booze!

Of course, there’s more than one way to spike your adult hot chocolate. Step aside, junior. It’s time for grown-up cocoa to take the stage.

Candy Cane Cocoa

This one’s perfect for any holiday season, because you probably already have the signature ingredients laying around. You’ll need whipped cream, peppermint schnapps, milk, and of course, hot cocoa. First, make the cocoa as you normally would. Next, discretely add one ounce of peppermint schnapps from a flask hidden in your back pocket, instantly turning your cocoa into adult hot chocolate. Whistle nonchalantly as you pour. It’s better that way. Finally, top it off with whipped cream and stir with a candy cane. Ho ho ho!

Cocoa Express Recipe for Adult Hot Chocolate

This one will definitely get your engine running in the morning. Add a shot of your favorite home-brewed espresso to some top-shelf hot cocoa for adult hot chocolate that comes with some extra zing. Add a dab of Sriracha style hot sauce, and you’ll be ready to take on the world.

Chocolate Orange

Don’t you just love those chocolate oranges? You know: the kind that you smack against the countertop, peel back the foil, and eat the little embossed slices? This adult hot chocolate drink tastes just like those, but has the added benefit of preventing you from operating heavy machinery. Seriously. Don’t.

Here’s how it works: kick it off with your favorite hot cocoa mix, prepared as usual. Add ½ ounce of vanilla vodka, and an equal amount of orange liqueur. Put a little mountain of whipped cream on top, and sprinkle your adult hot chocolate with cinnamon.

Vino Cocoa

This exquisite beverage combines two of life’s greatest pleasures: chocolate and red wine. And yes, it seems a little strange at first, but you’ll soon be a connoisseur. Start with your favorite red wine, but maybe not your favorite expensive red wine. We don’t want to the wine gods to strike us down: hints of chocolate, strong smoky finish.

We’re going all in with this one. Let’s start with honest-to-goodness chunks of dark chocolate. Figure out how many servings you’re going to make, and measure out 1/3 cup of chocolate and 1 ½ cup of milk for each. Bring chocolate and milk to a medium simmer, stirring steadily so it doesn’t get chunky or burnt. Once it’s nice and creamy, pour in 1 cup of red wine per reveler, and continue to heat everything is hot again. Enjoy this amazing version of adult hot chocolate, but take it easy. This stuff will put you into a mild chocolate coma if you overdo it!

Iced Chocolate is a Warm Weather Treat

Iced chocolate Perhaps you are yearning for a cool day to dive into that winter-time treat you love so much, or perhaps you are just a chocoholic with a daily yearning for a cocoa-rich treat. Whatever the case, iced chocolate is a perfect treat for a hot day. Surely, you have heard of iced tea and iced coffee. Iced chocolate works off the same premise. Take a hot beverage that you love and serve it over ice to make it warm weather appropriate. This works great with hot chocolate, and with a Keurig coffee maker, making iced chocolate is a breeze!

Iced Chocolate from Hot Chocolate K-Cups

Iced Chocolate Drink from Hot ChocolateAny number of instant hot cocoa mixes or K-Cup hot chocolates are great for this, and CoffeeForLess carries a variety of hot cocoa and hot chocolate options. However, if you are looking for an ice-cold chocolate treat on demand, nothing beats K-Cup hot chocolate.

Hot Chocolate K-Cups are a great choice because the hot cocoa that they produce is rich and delicious without being too heavy to be enjoyable on a hot day. Simply prepare the hot chocolate K-Cup the same way you normally would, but put ice in the cup that you plan to brew the hot chocolate into. For a real treat, try adding a flavored syrup to your iced chocolate. Mint syrup is particularly delicious.

If this is not enough iced chocolate to assuage your chocolate cravings, try the hot chocolate pops that we have suggested previously. They are almost as easy to make as iced chocolate drinks and are sure to please any children you might have around. So, as you can see, enjoying your hot chocolate K-Cups or instant hot chocolate is not something to forget about just because Summer is around the corner.

Hot Chocolate K-Cups in the Summer

Hot chocolate is a delicious winter treat, and thanks to K-Cups, I get to enjoy it all winter with almost no effort.  The problem comes in when this warming that happens every spring and refuses to abate until the nethers of autumn these days starts to get in the way of my chocolate fix.  What I need is a good way to enjoy K-Cup hot chocolate cold.

Hot Chocolate in the Summer

The Internet, as always, offers a number of solutions to this problem, some odd and some
unreasonable but inspiring. It seems there is a trend of making fancy frozen hot chocolate beverages going on, perhaps in part thanks to Oprah. These seem good, and they make mechocolate-shake
try a super simple version of this fancy frozen hot chocolate recipe that everyone’s into. My version: brew K-Cup hot chocolate, pour over ice. To be honest, it was pretty darn good for such a haphazard preparation. The K-Cup hot chocolate flavor comes through strong and creamy and the chill doesn’t seem to take away from anything. Afterall, I brewed first then poured it over ice, so it’s full strength hot cocoa, just iced.

I’ll consider that my plan for days when I’m yearning for hot chocolate but haven’t had the chance to prepare for what, I should say, is a rather predictable occurrence. So, I put my mind to coming up with something even better, something cold and chocolate for a chocolate-hungry summer day, and that was when it came to me: fudgesicles.

Hot Chocolate K-Cup Fudgesicles

Fudgesicles were one of my favorite things as a kid in the summertime, such a cool cocoa treat. I had to try to make K-Cup hot chocolate fudgesicles, and I devised a plan also derived from childhood, a plan so cunning that I could execute it at the office!

All that I needed was K-Cup hot chocolate, an ice cube tray, plastic wrap, and toothpicks. I remembered doing this with fruit juice, but would this work? Were instant summer fudgesicles only as far away as my K-Cup brewer?

They were. Fudgy, icey, cool and creamy, mini-fudgesicles on a stick. Now, I have the perfect use for my K-Cup hot chocolate in the summer!
