Creamy Hot Chocolate

Now that I live in the south I love winter because it is not as severe as in the north. Today, for instance, we woke up to a temperature of 41 degrees. So nice and dry. Now what goes really well with a cold weather? Hot cocoa of course. So today, I'm posting a recipe for a delicious, creamy, rich hot chocolate that I tried when I went to a town on a mountain in Brazil. Enjoy.

  Creamy Hot Chocolate


½ cup table cream

½ cup milk

1 tbsp sweet condensed milk

3oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Whipped cream and cinnamon (optional)

In a pan stir and heat table cream, milk and sweet condensed milk in medium heat until thick. Turn off heat and add the chocolate chips. Mix well until chocolate is completely melted. Put back on stove and, in medium heat, stir it until creamy. Serve with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Variations: Use mint baking chips instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips for a minty taste.

Add 1tsp of honey if you like your hot cocoa sweeter.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Stay warm and have a blessed winter.
