Sometimes plain hot chocolate is not enough. Sometimes you need hot chocolate that will make you feel really, really warm inside. An Orange-Chocolate Truffle is just the ticket on a cold night. Seeing as it's 3 degrees this morning in Chicago (-18 with the wind chill), I recommend you try this tonight!
1 oz Grand Marnier
1/2 oz añejo tequila (I used Tres Generaciones Añejo*)
3 oz hot chocolate
layer of fresh cream
Pour first three into a mug and stir. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
*Disclosure: I was invited to a TG tasting dinner and given a bottle of their Añejo. Only products I truly recommend, whether or not they were given to me for free, are mentioned on this site.
