Well, today in our great state of Michigan, it is -1 degrees! If you are like my family you are hiding out indoors trying to stay warm. Today presents an excellent opportunity to perfect an easy rich hot cocoa recipe with a touch of cinnamon before hitting the ice tomorrow for some fishing! I hope you and yours enjoy this cinnamon hot cocoa and have a Happy and SAFE New Year!
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
4 cups of 2% milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon per 8 oz. mug
1 can whipped cream
Melt the sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder and chips together on low heat while stirring constantly with a whisk. Add the milk after the ingredients have melted well together. After the milk heats up add the vanilla. If everyone in your family likes cinnamon you could add it to the pot otherwise add 1/8 t. cinnamon per mug. If you like spicy hot chocolate you could omit the cinnamon and add cayenne powder. Garnish with whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles and dust with cinnamon! IF you don’t like a really rich hot cocoa add milk to your liking.
