'Winter Buzz' Baileys Almande Hot Chocolate

'Winter Buzz' Baileys Almande Hot Chocolate

Ever since I heard about Baileys Almande last year, I had been awaiting it’s release with coffee cup (or hot chocolate mug) in hand. Lucky for me, Santy Claus brought me a nice big bottle of it – what a treat on Christmas morning.

Finally! A boozy, creamy and sweet Baileys just like it’s dairy-based counterpart but made with almond milk so I can sip away with no tummy aches afterwards. Can I get a what whatttttt!

Of course it’s amazing in a strong cup of coffee but it’s also great in hot chocolate. I found a beautiful vegan hot chocolate mix made on Bowen Island from Cocoa West.

For this recipe you can use your favourite store-bought hot chocolate mix or else make your own. I have two dairy-free hot chocolate recipes on Koko’s Kitchen:
