Cinnamon Spiced Hot Chocolate & The Giveaway Winner

Its suddenly very cold in Bangalore again .. Quite strange because, its supposed to get warmer after Sankranti  .. But, I totally love the weather here right now .. Its so cold that I felt like a really good cup of Hot Chocolate  .. Not the sort of Hot Chocolates that you get in packets, but the old fashioned kind..

Real Chocolate, melted with some warm milk, A dash of spices & some marshmellows .. A mug of warm Hot Chocolate that instantly lifts your spirits after a day's of hard work .. The kind that makes you forget the world  .. Yes the Real Hot Chocolate with Cinnamom .. BLISS

Cinnamon Spiced Hot Chocolate


You Will Need
  • 1 Cup Full Fat Milk
  • 20g Bittersweet Dark chocolate - chopped/grated
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamom
  • 1/2 tsp sugar

How To:
  • In a small pat, heat half the quantity of milk alongwith dark chocolate. Simmer on low flame until the chocolate melts completely.
  • Add the remaining milk, sugar & cinnamon
  • Heat on low flame until the hot chocolate is warm enough for you to enjoy
  • Pour into your favorite mug & Enjoi !!!

NOTE:
  • You can top with some whipped cream as well .. Since, I used full fat milk, I didn't use it
  • Add a few marshmellows if you like .. I am not very fond of them,  so I chose not to
  • You can even add grated ginger or orange zest for a different flavor


I used a random no. generator  And the winner of  Laxmi Hiremath's 'The Dance of Spices'  is
Deepa - Hamaree Rasoi

Congratulations Deepa .. I hope you enjoy reading the book. Mail me your contact details  at vegetable.platter@gmail.com
