Just a quick little evening share, this beautiful picture and recipe arrived in my email inbox this morning and I had to pass it on, from the lovely Folk Magazine.
Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
3 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
A few drops of almond extract
Whipped cream, chocolate shavings and cinnamon sticks for garnish.
Cut chocolate into pieces and place in blender or food processor. Add sugar and cinnamon. Cover and blend or process until finely ground. Cook and stir chocolate mixture and milk in a large saucepan over low heat about 10 minutes or until chocolate melts. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vanilla and almond extract. Beat with a rotary beater until very frothy. Serve in mugs. Top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and cinnamon sticks if desired. Makes about 4 (8-ounce) servings.
