Why I Love This Recipe
This is creamy and wonderful, try and get Mexican cinnamon it is softer.
Ingredients You'll Need
4 cups whole milk
2 (4-inch) cinnamon sticks
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 ounces dark chocolate
In a medium saucepan, combine milk, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. Heat over medium until the mixture begins to steam, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
While the mixture heats, cut or break up the chocolate into small pieces so it melts evenly. Once the milk is steaming, add the chocolate and whisk until it’s melted and incorporated.
Turn off the heat and discard cinnamon sticks. Use a molinillo or whisk to mix the hot chocolate vigorously until it's frothy, 3 to 4 minutes, or blend in a blender for about 2 minutes. Serve hot.
