I know coffee is generally the drink of choice for moms, but I never acquired a taste for it. Instead I have a hot chocolate and a chai latte habit. Yum.

I normally stay away from alcohol in the morning and from caffeine at night, but for those cold winter snow days when I’m home, this Rum Chata Hot Cocoa really hits the spot.

It’s the perfect treat for after I’ve shoveled the driveway or built snow forts with the kids.

My friend helped me photograph all of my rum chata recipes in one day and we did a lot of taste testing post photographing each item (maaaannn was this fun). She said… and I quote… “This is the best drink I’ve ever had.”

And it really is amazing.
