Just in time for Christmas or Valentine’s Day is a sweet strawberry cocoa recipe. Kids and adults will love this rich strawberry flavored hot chocolate.
My kids always love and appreciate a special treat on a holiday and they know on Valentine’s it will be something pink or red! The best part about this recipe is that once you are done making it you can use the leftover strawberries and chocolate to make chocolate covered strawberries to go along with the cocoa.

Want a more adult version? If your answer was yes, then find your favorite strawberry liqueur and kick it up a notch! I personally like the one shown in the photo. But you could use any liquor that goes well with strawberry.
