One of the best moments during Christmas season, is lounging on the couch and drinking hot chocolate by the Christmas tree. Hot chocolate always makes me feel happy and it's definitely my got to drink when i'm down.
When i was younger, i had tried the aztec chocolate in my dad's coffee shop and i totally fell for it! So i decided to share with you my "secret" recipe. Trust, you'll completely love it, especially if it's cold where you are.
Chocolate to melt
Ground Cinnamon for dusting
My recipes are a bit messy, for those who know me already, i'm not much of a cooking type of girl. I feel like i don't belong in the kitchen, and as a result i don't usually measure anything, and just go with my gut. Also, i always prefer the easiest and quickest ingredients. If it's remade for me, i'll take it!
My suggestion to you, is to prepare the hot chocolate as you usually would. I normally warm up the milk, throw the cocoa in, and for this recipe, would melt 1/4 of the chocolate and combine it with the rest of mixture.
Then, i add just a touch chilli powder, 1/3 teaspoon cinnamon and vanilla extract. At this point, if you want you can add any type of liquor as much as you want. Add the whipped cream, sprinkle some cinnamon, and add the cinnamon stick. And then simply enjoy!
