Why Coconut?

I thought this hot chocolate with coconut milk would be a delicious treat.  I wanted to make a little something special for my Valentine. My husband is originally from Guyana and a big fan of all things coconut. With this snowy, snowy weather I was inspired to make him some coconu hot chocolate.

Also, coconut milk is a great choice for any one with dietary restrictions around dairy.

Next I added a shot of Baileys.  It is completely optional, but it certainly was yummy!  It’s perfect for a little grown-up treat, but it’s also delicious without the Baileys.


Lastly I topped off the coconut hot chocolate with some whipped cream, and a home made Bailey’s marshmallow -with a little heart cut out for my lovey.  

In addition, you can find the Bailey’s Marshmallows Recipe here.   Or, just use a regular marshmallow, and cut out a heart from it with a mini cookie cutter like I did.
