English Toffee Hot Chocolate

It is still Summer in South-Africa and the weather is still as hot as you can get in Gauteng this time of year, but with Summer, rain pours and I don't know about you, but somehow, when it is overcast, rainy and overall miserable looking, I want something hot to drink.

I concocted this English Toffee Hot Chocolate , and was it a hit !  All of us enjoyed a mug {some even hinted for more - not sure if it has something more to do with the added liqueur though!}

Dimitri, Jacobus and one or two other guys have a carpooling thing going and this week it was Jacobus' turn, so he did receive a mug --- without the added liqueur, as he still had to drive home {sorry if you take a sip of any kind of liquor at my house, no driving .. you sleep over - my rule!} But he enjoyed his just as much, therefore, go ahead make a big batch, and just before adding the English Toffee Liqueur, pour some out for the kids or a driving visitor.

English Toffee Hot Chocolate ~ this drink will warm you up instantly ! #EnglishToffee #HotChocolate #Beverages

4 - 6 Servings {depending on your glass/mug size}


1 liter Full Cream Milk
6 TB Caster Sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1 t Ground Cinnamon
6 Large {Normal} Marshmallows
1/2 cup English Toffee Liqueur
Mini Marshmallows, to top
Chocolate Chips & Sprinkles, to decorate
Thick Toffee Sauce {I use ice-cream sauce}


1.) Place the Milk {keep a little aside to mix the Cocoa Powder}, Caster Sugar, Cocoa powder - mixed with a little of the Milk and the Cinnamon in a large saucepan - heat and stir until boiling.
2.) Add the Large Marshmallows and stir until melted - remove from heat.
3.) Stir in the English Toffee Liqueur and pour into heatproof mugs/glasses.
4.) Top with Mini Marshmallows and decorate with Chocolate Chips and/or Sprinkles.
5.) Finally, drizzle with Toffee Sauce and serve immediately.
