How to Make a Boozy Spiked Hot Chocolate

Pour hot chocolate into a mug and stir in amaretto.

Top the hot chocolate with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Skewer marshmallows on a cocktail garnish skewer. Carefully rotate while using a kitchen blowtorch to toast the marshmallows. Lay toasted marshmallow garnish across the top of the mug.
