Spiked Valrhona Hot Chocolate

This silky, dark hot chocolate from L'Ecole Valrhona Pastry Chef, Derek Poirier, is not the hot cocoa you grew up with. Guanaja 70%, Valrhona’s extra bittersweet chocolate keeps it intensely bittersweet, while whole milk and heavy cream give body and richness. A splash of vodka lands it firmly in adult beverage territory. If you prefer a bolder-tasting booze, Bourbon or tequila make excellent substitutions.
