Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I had to squeeze in one more recipe before I head out for all the Christmas festivities, especially when it’s a delicious hot chocolate cocktail filled with all sorts of homemade goodness.

Homemade hot chocolate is a weakness of mine. Usually I make a big crockpot full of it, but this year I opted for making a few different variations of hot chocolate (like this one or this one) to break up the monotony of just one kind of hot chocolate every night.

The pinnacle of all the hot chocolates I’ve busted out this season has to be this one. 

I’m a sucker for a chili and chocolate combination. The bit of spice with the rich dark chocolate sets my taste buds on fire with pure happiness.

Making homemade hot chocolate on the stove, or even in the crockpot, is miles better than any hot cocoa mix you can pick up at the store.

It’s luxurious, a little spicy, and most importantly the two different types of booze inside will warm you up even more than the actual warmth of the hot chocolate itself.

Plus there’s something about make it from scratch that gives you an even bigger sense of accomplishment once it’s all done.

Since this weekend is Christmas, I thought it would be a perfect time to share this drink with you as a little treat for yourself. Yes you can make it for all your family and friends if you want to… but given all the craziness, this is just the right drink to whip up when you need some time alone to just enjoy the season and some quiet.

I’ll be escaping with a glass by the fire, pups on either side of me (if I can convince them to stay that way for longer than two seconds). Merry Christmas, friends!
