Here is a holiday treat to help you ring in the New Year with froth and with luster and all that they bring!
I am a big fan of www.homestarrunner.com and have noticed that from time to time, both Homestar Runner and Strong Bad have mentioned drinking a cuppa "hot jones". And according to the Homestar Runner Wiki, “Hot Jones, a popular wintertime beverage, is a steaming white liquid with red sprinkles in it. It may be a coffee or chocolate drink topped with whipped cream.” I like to think that it is a cup of hot white chocolate cocoa spiked with vodka, and here is a recipe for just such a drink.
White Chocolate Hot Jones Recipe
2 cups water
6 cups milk
1 (12 ounce) package white chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Grenadine for pinking it up
Stir together water, milk, chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon in a medium-sized stock pot.
Heat on your stovetop on low for an hour, stirring occasionally, until all ingredients are evenly melted.
Add an ounce of vodka and a half ounce of grenadine to a mug, fill the rest up with hot Jones, and top with whipped cream and sprinkles.
Mmm, that’s good Jones!
