Recipe

Not for kids only—mugs of hot chocolate and a plate of cookies make a lovely end to a wintry evening’s dinner party.

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients

Cinnamon whipped cream:

  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Hot chocolate:

  • 6 cups (48 ounces) whole milk
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2½ tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces

Directions

1. To prepare the whipped cream, put the cream in a large mixing bowl. Using a whisk or an electric mixer, whip the cream until it begins to stiffen. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together and add to the cream. Continue whipping until soft peaks form. If not serving immediately, cover and refrigerate up to 3 hours ahead of time.

2. To prepare the hot chocolate: In a large saucepan, combine the milk, cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is hot, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the chocolate and cook, stirring constantly, until it has melted completely. Remove from the heat and pour into large cups. Top with cinnamon whipped cream and serve at once.
