Hot Chocolate Recipe

S talked me into sampling hot chocolate from an ice cream shop. I was a little skeptical, because usually ice cream shops give you things that make you cold, not warm.


I tried their Mexican hot chocolate. It wasn’t bad.


But I soon realized that if I want a cup of hot chocolate to my specific liking, I should probably just make it myself.

I glanced at some recipes, and decided to give it a go.

I started with 2 oz of semi sweet baking chocolate.


I chopped it up (so it would melt faster):


I poured two cups of milk and put it in a small saucepan. I turned the heat on low-medium, and waiting until the milk warmed.


Then I whisked in the chopped chocolate, added a couple spoonfuls of sugar, a dash of cinnamon, and a dash of cayenne pepper.


It made enough for me and S to each have a cup.

It was perfect.
I should have done this weeks ago.
