I can’t believe we are already this far into December. Time is going by so fast and I am preparing everything for the holidays. This recipe that I am sharing today is such a treat. I love hot chocolate and this Mexican hot chocolate is full of chocolate and cinnamon flavors. It is a perfect base for elevating your typical eggnog and adding a chocolate flair. The spiced rum adds some additional holiday flavor. This drink would also work well as a punch or a dessert punch. What could be better than spiked eggnog? Spiked eggnog with chocolate. Make this easy drink for your family and friends this December and they will love you for it!
