INGREDIENTSFOR THE HOT CHOCOLATE
2 cups milk (I used 2%)2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder.
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne (optional – you can omit this if you don’t want it too spicy)
1 ounce bittersweet chocolate. Or 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Bittersweet or milk if you prefer.OPTIONAL TOPPINGS
1 toothpick dipped in Peppermint Oil, marshmallows, chocolate shavings, cinnamon stick for stirring
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add milk, cocoa powder, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, chili powder, cayenne pepper (if desired). Mix together with a whisk, add the bittersweet chocolate and heat until the chocolate has completely melted and the mixture is hot, but not boiling.
Divide hot chocolate into 2 mugs and serve with marshmallows, chocolate shavings and a cinnamon stick. This is when you stir in the toothpick that has been dipped in Peppermint oil... it adds a little kick and is absolutely delicious.
