The Chocolate Kiss is a wonderful spiked hot chocolate drink that will get you warmed up in no time. It's a variation of the simple Adult Hot Chocolate that adds a touch of coffee liqueur for a deeper flavor profile.
In keeping with the name, I like to top this one with a healthy mound of whipped cream that is crowned by placing a Hershey's Kiss chocolate on top.
For a drink that is a little stronger, replace the coffee liqueur with one of the espresso-infused vodkas like those from Three Olives or Van Gogh.
