Mexican Hot Chocolate
We made our Hot Chocolate with fat-free milk and it was a big hit. For a richer chocolate, make it with whole or reduced-fat milk. Now and then indulgence is good for the soul.

INGREDIENTS
2 quarts fat-free milk
3-inch cinnamon sticks
20 ounces bittersweet chocolate (your favorite), broken into chunks
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
Combine the milk and cinnamon sticks in a 3 3/4 Quart saucepan. Over medium heat, stir constantly until steamy and just beginning to bubble around the edges. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes to infuse the cinnamon flavor into the milk. Stir in the chocolate chunks. When chocolate is melted, remove cinnamon sticks and stir in vanilla extract. Insert the blender and blend on Low about 1 minute using a gentle up-and-down motion. Continue blending on Low until the mixture is creamy and frothy. Spoon into cups or mugs and top with a dollop of freshly whipped cream if desired.
For Hot Cinnamon Mocha, add 3 to 4 tablespoons instant espresso
powder to the milk when steeping with the cinnamon sticks.
