Notes on the Coconut Cardamom Hot Chocolate

You can substitute the canned coconut milk for coconut milk from a carton for a lighter version. The cannet coconut milk is def worth it though!

I’ve used bittersweet chocolate but if you prefer a sweeter version feel free to use milk chocolate as a substitute.

Optional toppings include whipped cream, mini chocolate chips, toasted shredded coconut and tons of marshmallows!

Spiked Cardamom Hot Chocolate

If you’re looking for a spiked hot chocolate I would add 2 oz of Kahlua and 1 oz of whipped cream vodka.
