Okay, I had to post again. I decided (after many many cooking shows watched) try making something tasty for dessert. I knew I wanted something chocolatey, but didn’t want to bake at 10:45pm (I really need to go to work tomorrow after having a fever today) and I wanted something small.
So I made cocoa. I included the recipe. A warning, though, it is a bit dark (which I like dark, so it was okay with me. My milk-chocolate loving fiance said it was a tad too dark but still good).
Cinnamon Hot Chocolate – Dark
Serves 2-3, depending on mug size
2.5c Milk (Whole is better)
2t Vanilla Extract
2T Brown Sugar
2T Cocoa Powder
dash cinnamon (to taste)
1. Put milk and vanilla in a small pot and heat on medium-low to medium (depends on how your stove heats).
2. When medium-warm, add the brown sugar, cocoa and cinnamon and whisk in until all lumps are gone.
3. Finish heating to desired Temperature and serve.
I really really liked it! And it was easy to make. I am excited to keep it in the recipe book. For those who like more sweet, less dark cocoa, use a little more brown sugar and a little less cocoa.
In other news: Going to a funeral/memorial on Saturday for an Auntie who lost her battle with cancer, but is now in peace. It will be unfun. But it will be immediately followed with a meeting with or wedding cake maker to finalize details! I am soo excited for this latter part. My calendar is SO FULL leading up to the wedding.
