Whipped cream makes this an even more special treat.
(makes 1 cup)
6 ounces whole milk
2 ounces light cream
1/2 ounce cinnamon syrup, or to taste
1/8 tsp. Whole Spice Instant Espresso (optional)
2 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, grated or chopped
Whipped cream (optional)
In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the milk, cream, syrup and optional espresso powder until hot but not boiling.
Add the chocolate, take the pan off the heat (or lower heat, watching carefully to make sure the mixture does not boil) and whisk until melted and well combined.
