Butterscotch Hot Chocolate {12 Weeks of Christmas Treats}

During the Christmas season, Eggnog usually reigns king among the yuletide beverages.  But oftentimes, I want something festive and warm. 

Cue Butterscotch Hot Chocolate!  It’s simple to whip up and delicious to enjoy.

Stir the hot cocoa mix into the hot chocolate.  Stir in milk and buttershots to taste.  Top with whipped cream or marshmallows.


  1. Oh this does look super comforting!!! I bet even my mom would love this (a woman who is not a huge fan of chocolate but loooves butterscotch!)

  2. Oh so yummy!!! Buttershots anything is yummy!! Visiting from Pam's Blog Hop

  3. What a fantastic idea! This sounds so much nicer than egg nog :)

  4. I love butterscotch and this sounds so good but what are butter shots and how do I get them?

    1. Buttershots are also sold as Butterscotch Schnapps. It should be available at any liquor store (or grocery store if you live in an area where grocery store sell liquor!)

    2. I was about to ask the same thing - will definitely have to make a stop into the liquor store soon :)

  5. Sounds yummy! I love hot chocolate! Do you think Torani syrup would work instead of the butter shots?

    Hi! It's Jilly

    1. Absolutely! I start with less than I have noted in the recipe, since syrups can be much more concentrated, and add more to taste!
