Homemade Bourbon Spiked Hot Chocolate

The temps are expected to drop this upcoming week and I’m SO excited!! It doesn’t really feel very festive when it’s 80 degrees outside, so anytime it drops even two or three degrees, I break out a light sweater and whip up a cup of hot chocolate. It’s Franklyn’s birthday next week so I decided to whip up a special homemade bourbon spiked hot chocolateThis would be perfect for guest instead of dessert and can be served with crackers or warm bread and butter. Check out my homemade bourbon spiked hot chocolate recipe below!
