  • 1 tbsp chocolate syrup
  • 1 tbsp chocolate sprinkles
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream 1/2 cup
  • 1/4 cup kahlua
  • 1 tbsp dark creme de cacao liqueur
  • 1 cup hot chocolate
  • Whipped cream, mini chocolate chips, coarse sanding sugar, and/or additional chocolate syrup and chocolate sprinkles for garnish


  • Place chocolate syrup on a small plate. Turn glass upside down and dip the rim in the chocolate syrup.
  • Dip the syrup-coated rim into a shallow tray of chocolate sprinkles until it is coated.
  • Place one scoop of ice cream into the glass/mug.
  • Add Kahlua and creme de cacao to the glass.
    TIP: The liquor taste is present, but not too overpowering. You could add more alcohol if you’d like. The hot chocolate and ice cream are heavy enough to support a stronger drink. You could also really mix things up and use your favorite liquors in this drink. Rum, coconut rum, chocolate vodka, or Bailey’s would all be yummy.
  • Pour hot chocolate over the ice cream and liquor.
    TIP: Use a nice quality hot chocolate. I use the hot cocoa recipe on the Hershey’s cocoa powder container.
  • Top with whipped cream and any garnish/toppings.
  • Serve immediately.
