As the temperature drops and the cosy vibes settle in, there's nothing quite like wrapping your hands around a mug of hot chocolate. But we're not talking about just any hot chocolate; we're talking about a rich and indulgent Barti Rum Caramel Hot Chocolate. This recipe brings together velvety hot chocolate and a boozy cream topping for the ultimate boozy experience!


For the Hot Chocolate:

  • 450ml milk
  • 4 tablespoons of Crwst's Hot Chocolate blend

For the Boozy Cream Topping:

  • 100ml double cream
  • A couple of spoons of Barti Rum Caramel (adjust to taste)

Extra Touch (Optional):

  • Barti Rum Caramel, for an ultimate boozy hot chocolate

Tools You'll Need:

  • Saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Separate bowl


1. Perfect Hot Chocolate:

  • Begin by pouring 450ml of milk into a saucepan.
  • Place the saucepan over low heat and gently warm the milk while stirring occasionally. It's important not to let the milk come to a boil; we're aiming for the perfect, soothing temperature.
  • Keep an eye out for small bubbles forming at the sides of the pan. These gentle bubbles indicate that the milk has reached the ideal temperature for your hot chocolate.
  • Once you see those bubbles, take the saucepan off the heat.

2. Infusing: 

  • Whisk in 4 tablespoons of Crwst's hot chocolate blend into the warmed milk. Make sure the hot chocolate blend is fully whisked in, resulting in a velvety and smooth mixture.

3. Prepare the Boozy Cream Topping:

  • In a separate bowl, start by whisking up 100ml of double cream. *For a boozy twist* add a couple of spoons of Barti Rum Caramel. Whisk with purpose until you achieve soft peaks; the cream should be thick yet airy.

5. Assembling Your Masterpiece:

  • Pour the hot chocolate into your favourite mugs! Dollop a spoonful of the boozy cream topping onto the hot chocolate. 

7. Elevate with an Extra Touch (Optional):

  • Feeling a bit adventurous? Drizzle in an extra spoonful of Barti Rum Caramel directly into your hot chocolate. This adds an extra layer of that unmistakable boozy kick!

Sip and Savour: Now that you've crafted your very own Barti Rum Caramel Hot Chocolate, it's time to indulge in the warmth and comfort it offers. So go ahead, take that sip, and let the worries of the day melt away in the deliciousness of this perfect boozy hot chocolate!
