Santas Hot Chocolate

Christmas is around the corner, and I am definitely not ready. Too busy working on a decadent snack for Santa when he delivers the goods this Christmas Eve!

I know some folks claim that your packet hot chocolate is "just as a good", because it saves time (and there is a time for water and powder), but serving Santa is not the time to skimp on quality!

Small to medium saucepan
Functioning  stovetop

1 1/2 cups milk
9 Dove Dark Chocolates
2 squares 85% Dark Chocolate
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Pinch of cayenne (optional) 
Whipping Cream

1. Wash your hands.
2. Heat the milk in saucepan over MEDIUM until simmers.

3. Add chocolate and turn heat to SIMMER.

4. Let mixture sit x 30 secs. Remove from heat.
5. Whisk milk and chocolate together until smooth.

6. Add your spices. Season to taste.

7. Ladle into your cups. I suggest espresso size since this is rich , but's Christmas...go all out!
8. Add mallows and whipped cream.
9. Sprinkle with cinnamon or cocoa!
