Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

DSCN0702

We have all had hot chocolate. When it starts to get cold outside it becomes a comforting treat, it may be someone’s morning coffee or evening dessert, regardless it signifies warmth and comfort.

When young, hot chocolate typically was the powdered stuff, growing up it becomes more sophisticated. I remember being in Spain ordering a chocolate ice cream, I apparently ordered wrong but my miscommunication turned into the the best mistake I ever made. Hot chocolate in Spain is very thick and rich, it is meant to eat with a churro, I ate mine with a little spoon and nearly fell off my soda fountain stool while drinking. Here is a  delicious hot chocolate, not too sweet and full of flavor. Something to sit on the couch with a blanket and sip.

Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

One Serving

1 1/2 cup 2% milk
1 tbs. sugar
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. sea salt
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate, chopped

In a small saucepan heat milk, sugar, cinnamon and sea salt until it gently boils, take off the heat. Add chopped chocolate and let sit for one minute, then briskly whisk until combined. Serve immediately.
