I love this treat during cold weather or stormy days. Make it a date for two and cuddle with the hubs along with a toasty mug!

When serving to children, replace rum with rum extract (2 tbsp).

How to Make Butterscotch Rum Homemade Hot Chocolate

Step-by-Step

  1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan and heat to medium, but not a boil. Whisk thoroughly.
  2. Lower heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Optionally, sometimes I like to make it a little frothy, so I whip it with a submersion blender, right before serving. Or I have a special kettle I make cocoa in, as seen in picture. Very good.
  4. Serve with homemade marshmallows or a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
