The ultimate hot chocolate wih a hint of cinnamon and vanilla topped with frothy cream mmmmm.... Absolutely delightful for a cold winter\'s night or just for that sweet after dinner treat. I usually omit the sugar as I find the chocolate sweet enough but I do love dark chocolate!
1 block bittersweet chocolate broken into pieces
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tablespoon sugar to taste
11/4 cups milk
1/3 cup cream whipped
freshly grated chocolate or cocoa powder for dusting
Place chocolate pieces, cinnamon stick, vanilla essence, sugar, and milk into a small saucepan. Heat gently, stirring until the chocolate has melted. Bring to boil and whisk frequently until very smooth and frothy. Remove cinnamon stick.
Pour into warmed mugs with whipped cream on top. Sprinkle some freshly grated chocolate or cocoa powder. Serve immediately.
