"Hot Tamales" Spiked Hot Chocolate Recipe

Hot Tamales Spiked Hot Chocolate Recipe, If you love the candy you are sure to Love this hot, spicy and sweet 'Adult" hot chocolate version!
Hola Amigos! It's a beautiful 15 F today!!!! Oh yes! Beautiful compared to yesterday's bone shattering -16 (feeling like -35 F)! I haven't been out of my little house since Sunday when I went to the store and stock up like I was going to hibernate for months. I don't drive in the snow, so I knew what was coming for me! Truth be told, although I'm a homebody, I like to have the "choice" of getting in my car and drive to the store to get that extra ingredient missing of  a recipe, take a quick trip to my favorite coffee shop or just go browse the latest and greatest at the local dollar store.

I'm serving time in an Ice Cell and turning into a Hot Mess (aka Cabin Fever-itis), but since the only thing worse would be running out of chocolate, I'm celebrating my lock up with this Spiked Hot Tamale Hot Chocolate, and believe me...it is a celebration on a mug for sure!

Nothing fancy here, just a few ingredients with a lot of flavor and kick! Hard to feel when it's so cold,  the extra juice bottles and gallons of milk I got on Sunday, kept in the garage, are frozen!!!! Yikes!

This time I didn't have any whipped cream, or cute marshmallows, or sweet sprinkles, just Peppermint Hershey kisses, melting in the hot chocolate and some extra sweetness thanks to Marshmallow Fluff.

  1. Looks delicious and warm:) This would be great to serve on Valentine's Day or Evening:) It has been -45 here in Northern WI, I agree with you, I like having the "choice" to leave my little house in the woods~ Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines

    1. Thank You Lynn! Now that I think of it, you are right it would be great for Valentines it it stays this cold we definitely are going to need help getting all cozy and romantic, lol. Thanks or visiting!

  2. Muy caliente, Girl! Wow! This is awesome. What a "hot" drink to surprise when you serve it.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

    1. It sure is girlfriend...we still have at least 1 month more to go, better buy another bottle of tequila! LOL thank you for stopping by Rosey! Hugs

  4. Oh my! That looks GOOD! About this time of year, the regular hot chocolate starts to get "old"....perfect timing for something special!
    I laughed at how much alike we are. I love to "squirrel in" my craft and cooking supplies and then hibernate until everything's done - but that doesn't mean I don't want the option of driving out to pick up "one more thing" that I'd forgotten - or had an inspiration for along the way! We'd make great neighbors!

  5. Could you imagine if we were neighbors Miss J??? we would never get nothing done other than chat and cook goodies all day! It would be so much fun!!! I just wish it was possible! Maybe one of these days all Michigan bloggers should have a get together and share hibernation stories! So good to see you!!!! Blessings and stay warm!
