Aztec Hot Chocolate

Aztec Hot Chocolate Recipe
Happy Holidays! After being uncomfortably squished in yet another plane, I'm so glad to be home. Like being back home with my family isn't enough, it's also snowing!!! Anytime my family goes out to the snow, we have a tradition to watch a Christmas movie with hot chocolate afterwards. Coincidentally, one of my all time favorite drinks for winter is hot chocolate. We love the classic hot chocolate, but here's a delightful, delicious way to spice it up!

I love to serve these with giant marshmallows and a few cinnamon sticks. Have fun spicing up your hot chocolate this season! 

Needed: 6 cups milk (I used almond milk because my family excluded dairy), 10 ounces chopped dark chocolate, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, a pinch or two of cayenne (optional) and marshmallows/cinnamon sticks for garnish.
In a pot combine the (almond) milk and chocolate. Melt the chocolate over low/medium heat, stirring constantly. Once melted and the mixture is warmed through stir in the cinnamon and cayenne (if using). Serve hot!
Merry Christmas Eve!
