Butterscotch Whiskey Hot Chocolate

 

Butterscotch Whiskey Hot Chocolate topped with whipped cream and caramel sauce makes a sweet and soothing drink that will warm your heart on Valentine’s Day. Two kinds of chocolate, unsweetened cocoa and semi-sweet chocolate chips, give the hot chocolate a deep chocolate flavor. To make it extra special for Valentine’s Day, I added Whiskey Girl’s Butterscotch-Flavored Whiskey.

Whiskey already has a wonderful sweetness to it that lends itself to being paired with chocolate and the butterscotch flavor makes it even more delicious.

Whiskey Girl is a small-batch whiskey made by Dark Corner Distillery in Greenville, SC where they use traditional Appalachian distilling techniques. Whiskey Girl is “handcrafted with a kiss of flavor” and come in three flavors: Butterscotch, Peach, and Apple&Maple.

Even if you are not a whiskey lover, you will love this butterscotch-flavored whiskey. Especially when added to a warm mug of hot chocolate or added to a caramel sauce and drizzled over ice cream.

Flavored with all-natural extracts, Whiskey Girl has such a fabulously smooth taste that you might just want to pour it in a glass and sip it. But with such a delicious butterscotch flavor, you’ll also be tempted to add it to coffee, brownies, or maybe even bread pudding. It’s a wonderful base of flavor to add your own little touch to.

I especially like it in this Hot Chocolate recipe. Hot Chocolate has a wonderful way of warming the whole body, and even more so when it has a shot of whiskey in it.  🙂
