Grown Up Hot Chocolate Drink Recipe for Girls Night

Grown Up Hot Chocolate #SweetNLowStars

This weekend I’m hosting bunco and that means 3 things: laughter, big winners, and alcohol. And even if I can’t partake, I can still make it fun for the gals coming over!

Whoever hosts bunco is in charge of dinner for the girls but I always like to add a little something special as well so I’m making a big batch of hot chocolate to put in the crock pot and adding a bit of Godiva chocolate liqueur to make things a little more fun.

This is the perfect recipe to warm up on a cold winter day, or to keep the laughter going as we roll the dice and find out who will win the most buncos. 

Grown Up Hot Chocolate Drink Recipe with peppermint stir sticks #SweetNLowStars

Adding peppermint stir sticks just makes these mugs of spiked cocoa that much more fun. The peppermint taste left after stirring up the hot chocolate just adds to the amazing flavor of this cocoa.

And how cute are those snow men? I found them in a Wilton kit at Walmart and couldn’t resist. I’m sure the girls will love them too.
