If you’re looking for the best hot chocolate recipe to make for your family or for a fun holiday party, look no further! This is the kind of hot chocolate I imagine they serve on the Polar Express. It is the creamiest, most delicious cup of hot chocolate you’ll ever have!

Serve it on Christmas eve, or bring it in a thermos for some Christmas lights sight seeing. OR, do as we did, and serve it at an adult holiday party as a hot chocolate bar, complete with adult fixin’s like Kahluha, Bailey’s, peppermint schnapps and butterscotch schnapps! The butterscotch schnapps was my favorite mix-in, but so many at the party loved it with the peppermint schnapps.
