Amaretto Hot Chocolate

Combining our Real Deal Hot Chocolate with almond-flavored liqueur makes for an ultrarich drink with a nice nutty back note.

What to buy: The most commonplace brand of amaretto liqueur is Disaronno. It can be found in supermarkets and liquor stores. Or you can make your own.

For this recipe, use high-end chocolate, such as El Rey 41 percent milk chocolate.
