This is a really yummy recipe for hot chocolate. Cinnamon is among my favorite spices and it gives this drink a really good flavor.



This is the real deal. Rich, frothy, great aroma. Just what I was looking for. I served this with home made marshmallows. A real treat that will warm you up right down to your toes!



What a wonderful treat! I love mixing this up on a cold evening to sip while I'm reading, sewing, or browsing online. I used some cheap cocoa, I can only imagine how wonderful this would be with some top notch quality cocoa!
