Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 cup whole milk
  • 180 gram dark chocolate finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp demerara sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon powder
  • whipped cream & cocoa powder for topping

Instructions

  • Bring ¾ cup of water on slow flame to simmer. Whisk in cocoa powder until no lumps remain. Add milk and return to simmer.
  • Whisk in chopped chocolate, cinnamon and sugar. Cook for 5-7 minutes whisking frequently. Mixture should be smooth and creamy and chocolate melted.
  • Pour into mugs, top with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder. Serve hot.

Notes

  1. Using Dutch processed cocoa and best chocolate takes the taste to a new level of bliss.
  2. Next time I plan to add a bit of all spice powder (garam masala) too. The idea of adding flavours is limitless, you can add liqueur, extracts etc of your choice.
