Skip the store-bought hot cocoa mix – homemade hot chocolate is easier to make than you think with just a handful of ingredients that’s already sitting in your pantry. And it’s even better with a hint of Kahlua! Here’s a recipe for homemade hot chocolate for the kids and one for the parents.
KAHLUA HOT CHOCOLATE
