Orange Hot Chocolate

Ingredients for Orange Hot Chocolate:
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped (can substitute semisweet)
  • ½ tsp. orange extract
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • Serves 4.
  1. Place the milk and cinnamon in a saucepan, and gently heat to just below a simmer, about 180 °F.
  2. Add the chocolate, and stir while allowing to melt. Do not allow to come to a boil.
  3. When the chocolate has melted, strain the chocolate milk into another container, add the extracts, and whisk or blend until frothy. Transfer to mugs or heatproof glasses and serve.
Note: This hot chocolate is not sweet. Those who like it sweeter should use a chocolate with a higher sugar content, or add 1 tablespoon sugar with the chocolate.
