  • Cooking method: Stovetop
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
  • Cuisine type: Dessert


  • 1.5 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream, for topping (optional but highly recommended)
  • Chocolate shavings, for garnish (go crazy)

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine milk, heavy cream, and sugar over medium heat. Stir until sugar melts.
  2. Sift cocoa powder into the mixture. Mix thoroughly to avoid lumps. Nobody likes lumpy chocolate. Gross.
  3. Bring mixture to a gentle simmer, stirring frequently. Don’t let it boil – we’re making dessert, not a volcano.
  4. Remove from heat and add Baileys and vanilla extract. Stir well. Try not to drink it straight from the pan. Tempting, I know.
  5. Pour the mixture into your favorite mugs. Go fancy or go home.
  6. Optional: Top with whipped cream and sprinkle chocolate shavings on top. “Optional” but who are we kidding? Just do it.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap Baileys for any flavored liqueur. Think Kahlúa, amaretto, or peppermint schnapps for a holiday twist.
  • Garnishing Options: Add a dash of cinnamon, a pinch of sea salt, or crushed peppermint candy for a festive flair. Tiny umbrellas are fun too!
  • Cooking Tips: For a thicker consistency, reduce the milk by 1/4 cup. Wanna be a rebel? Mix in some melted chocolate with the cocoa powder for extra richness.
