For National Hot Chocolate Day, January 31st, a recipe for rum hot chocolate from Kōloa Rum Co., a premium rum brand from Hawaii. The recipe uses Kōloa Kauai Cacao Rum, which is chocolate-flavored (and chocolate-colored) rum. The chocolate gives the hot chocolate much more chocolate intensity than plain rum, and it’s worth buying a bottle—you can use it in so many cocktails. It’s also a nice gift for a chocolate lover.

If you can’t get hold of a bottle, you can substitute chocolate-flavored vodka.

For the marshmallows, look for better ones than the two big supermarket brands. Trader Joe’s has affordable “better” marshmallows.

If you don’t want marshmallows, substitute whipped cream.
