    In 3-quart saucepan, heat milk, cocoa, sugar and salt over medium heat, beating with whisk often until cocoa is fully incorporated and mixture is warm and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla, liqueur and vodka.

    Carefully pour mixture into heatproof punch bowl. Serve immediately with whipped cream, chocolate chips and chocolate cookie straws.

Expert Tips

  • Serve with candy canes instead of chocolate cookie straws to add a minty flavor.
  • If you’re not concerned with presentation and want to keep the punch warm longer, keep it in a slow cooker on the “warm” setting.
