My Favorite Hot Chocolate

Ah winter. The holiday season. The perfect time for curling up on the couch with a piping hot cup of cocoa.

My sister, brother and I have all been hanging out downstairs all day due to the pouring rain. It got pretty chilly so they asked me to make them some hot chocolate.

I cheated and used the packet hot chocolate. However, due to my insane hatred of using box pantry items so I had to spice it up a little...

My Favorite Hot Chocolate
(serves 1)

6-8oz milk
1 packet hot chocolate (any brand but I used Nestlé Rich Chocolate)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Whipped cream

Heat up your milk in a saucepan on medium heat. Constantly mix the milk to avoid burning it. After the milk has a gentle boil add the packet of hot chocolate. Whisk in the powder. Add cinnamon and vanilla. After the cocoa is all mixed, take off the stove and let cool for a few minutes. Pour your cocoa into a mug and top with whipped cream.

My sister said it was delish...I'd have to agree :] I hope you all enjoy the recipe!
