"One Love" Hot Chocolate
I make this simple version of island hot chocolate for my Swedish-Jamaican kids. Serve with buttered graham crackers or Jamaican Coconut Bread. Simmer: 15 minutes.
Yield: Makes 2 cups
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 small cinnamon stick
- pinch grated nutmeg
- 1 1/4 cups whole milk, warmed
- 2 to 4 tablespoons Dutch process cocoa powder*
- Garnish: whipped cream
- Combine water and cinnamon in a large pot, and bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick, and discard. Add nutmeg and milk, and stir. Stir in cocoa. Pour into cups. Garnish, if desired.
- *For testing purposes, we used Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Hot Chocolate mix.
