Sometimes you just need a cup of steaming hot chocolate. When I was little I remember my mom standing over the stove stirring a pot of hot cocoa. I'm sure it was a perk of a school snow day. Here's my version with a hint of cinnamon. It's delicious and the spice really warms the chocolate. Give it a try and I bet you will love it.
