This homemade hot-chocolate recipe is concocted by melting a bar of organic dark chocolate over the stove with rich and creamy cow’s milk, vanilla, and sugar, and then topping with a cinnamon stick and a dollop of whipped cream (no store-bought powders here!). I love the flavor and health benefits of dark chocolate, but semi-sweet or milk chocolate would be divine.
