Hot Cocoa with Whipped Cream Vodka




The snow and cold weather has finally arrived in Michigan; typical for January, but late coming in this unusually mild winter. I try to walk with my puppy throughout the winter months, but some days, when the temperature is only in the teens, it might be pushing things a bit. I arrive home with frozen cheeks and it takes a while to warm up. Usually a hot drink does the trick and yesterday I got a bit adventurous and made my hot cocoa into a delicious adult version that warmed me right up.

To make this hot, creamy drink, simply make your favorite version of hot cocoa to start. Sometimes I make it from scratch, using milk and cocoa powder, but k cups in my Keurig work fine too. Add a shot of whipped cream flavored vodka and top with a generous amount of whipped cream. It's so rich and delicious - the very best grown up version of hot cocoa you will ever have and perfect for a cold winter night (or day).

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I've never heard of whipped cream flavored vodka! Really??? As soon as the temps go up just a little, I'm going to have to go shopping . . .

  2. Sounds good to me . . .
    I'd probably be "whipped" for the rest of the day!

  3. You had me at Vodka! Im gonna have to give this a shot.....or two.

  4. Lisa took the words right out of my mouth! Especially after this week!

  5. Looks delicious! This will definitely warm you up. Thanks for sharing. 💜

  6. Yum, yum, yummy!! I will be trying this one, even though it isn't as cold here as it is there!!

  7. Yum!!! Looking for that vodka today!!! Now....if we could just have a day below 70 degrees !! (Sorry bout your Spartans...but they did themselves proud!!)

  8. Your picture has me craving a big mug of hot cocoa. I've always done the sugar free Swiss Miss, but for a treat I bought a can of good chocolate mix for my husband. It was out of this world! MY daughter has a slow cooker mix for a crowd and it uses the Hershey's chocolate...Very good! Yay for the whipped cream, I could have that on green beans!!! :)


  9. I make this too I also make it with caramel liqueur it's tasty as well. Thanks for linking up at AS stroll Thru Life where I found you.

  11. Great idea. I just purchased a huge bottle of whipped cream vodka to experiment with and so far, it's been a failure. So, I'm definitely trying this tonight! Thanks -Karen

  12. Vicki, Your post reminded me that I had bought some hot chocolate for over the Christmas season. I think I have a couple envelopes left so guess what I will have this evening. Thanks. Sylvia D.

  13. The whipped cream is so yummy in hot cocoa! So heavenly. Thank you for sharing on SYC! Jo

  14. The whipped cream vodka would do me in.

    I am not a hot chocolate drinker except when it's really cold. And lately, we have been having some cold days so I think I need to get in the supplies.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!
