Yummy Rummy Hot Chocolate

When I saw this recipe I almost didn’t try it.  The original title, ” Alcoholic Hot Chocolate”,  sounded like hot chocolate for people with a drinking problem?   Hot chocolate for alcoholics!  I’m sure I’m the only one that read the title that way but, read it that way, I did.  I’m so glad I tried this. It was so deeelicious I was really blown away by this.   The combo of honey, cinnamon and the rum created a lot of  subtle nuances that I didn’t expect.  I was surprised. I wanted to change the name still, so I did.  Enjoy!
