Homemade slowcooker Baileys Hot Chocolate.
I love this time of year, mainly because you get to wear multiple layers, and drink warm drinks all day long. Which is what I would do all year round if I could.
It’s also when you may be hosting friends and family a lot more . Which can mean making a lot of warm festive drinks!
So if you’d rather spend more time with your friends and family, than playing host, there’s no better way to make your favourite hot festive drink than in a slow cooker. It’s super easy to do in advance, and all you have to do when your guests arrive is serve it.
I usually like serving mulled wine in my slow cooker, but more recently I tried making hot chocolate with an alcoholic twist, of a splash of Baileys. Just about every person I know has Baileys in their Christmas drinks cabinet, so it’s a great festive addition to this adult version of hot chocolate.
If you just want a night cap for one or two, once you’ve finished wrapping all the Christmas presents, I’d recommend using your microwave instead. It works just as well as the slow cooker, but is better suited to smaller servings.
The following recipe is based on a single serving, and I would recommend making it in the slow cooker if you are making for 3 or more people.
