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.
