Colder weather gives the excuse for the comfort of real, honest-to-goodness hot chocolate! Nix the powdered convenience for this easy and delightful version of a cold weather, timeless classic.
1/2 cup good quality chocolate chips (we use Ghiradelli 60% cacao)
2 cup whole milk, divided
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
whipped cream (optional)
Pour 1 cup of the milk, all the chocolate chips, and the cinnamon into a microwavable glass measuring cup. Microwave on high 20 seconds at a time, stirring after every interval until the chocolate is melted and well combined with the milk. Add the rest of the milk and stir well. Heat in the microwave 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each turn until desired temperature. Pour into mugs, top with marshmallows or whipped cream and enjoy!
