Christmas Hot Chocolate

Wish you a Merry Christmas everyone!

And I have a special Christmas drink as well. Chocolate drinks are a favorite of mine, hot or cold. But during Christmas this one drink is especially favored. I have been making it for a few years now, mainly the difference being the chocolate type. I make this one on a stove top but it can just as easily be made in the microwave as individual servings. The proportion below makes 2 servings.


2 1/4 cups whole milk
2 tablespoons cream (optional)
1 heaping spoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 stick cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coffee (optional)

Boil milk in a pot with the cinnamon. Bring it to a boil and add the cocoa powder, coffee and sugar. Stir till the sugar is dissolved. Then add the cream and the vanilla and simmer for a minute. Remove the cinnamon stick and serve hot.
