It’s National Chocolate Day, and it’s winter, so you have to have a hot chocolate at some point!
I love hot chocolate and this one has a mix of milk and dark chocolate with cinnamon to make a rich, decadent, and warming hot chocolate. Why waste time with writing, lets get right to the recipe!
Decadent Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
- 30 g milk chocolate
- 10 g dark chocolate
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 mug full of semi-skimmed milk
- cinnamon stick, marshmallows or whipped cream to garnish
Fill a saucepan 1/2 way with water and bring to a simmer
Over the simmering water, but not touching the water, place a metal or glass bowl filled with the chocolate and cinnamon (first three ingredients)
In another small pan, or in the microwave, warm a mug full of milk; do not let it boil.
Stir the chocolate as it melts, until smooth.
Add milk to the melted chocolate in the bowl, and stir until combined and warm.
Pour into a mug and garnish with cinnamon stick, marshmallows or whipped cream.
Keep warm and chocolatey!
