Amaro Montenegro Hot Chocolate

By: The Food Hunter

You won't find another drink as comforting as hot chocolate.  Add a little Amaro Montenegro, a traditional amaro distilled in Italy, and you've got the perfect adult winter beverage. Looking for something extra special...be sure to top off this creamy, rich treat with some homemade whipped cream




Amaro Montenegro Hot Chocolate

For the Hot Cocoa
1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
3 cups milk
8 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 oz Amaro Montenegro

In medium saucepan, stir cocoa with sugar and salt. Stir in milk and chocolate. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is hot. Gently whisk to completely blend mixture.

Add vanilla and amaro and stir to combine.  Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream.
For the Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon simple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Using an electric mixer or stand mixer fitted with a whisk, beat heavy whipping cream at high speed until soft peaks form, then add simple syrup, & vanilla extract. Whip until medium peaks form, about 1 minute longer.
