“Whipping this otherwise old-fashioned hot chocolate creates the illusion of creaminess. To vary this recipe, substitute 1 tablespoon brandy for the liqueur and omit the cinnamon.”


    • 4½ cups low-fat milk
    • ⅓ cup sugar
    • ⅓ cup coffee liqueur, such as Kahlua or Tia Maria (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • 1 Whisk together ½ cup milk, sugar, coffee liqueur (if using), cocoa, vanilla and cinnamon in a small bowl until a smooth paste forms. Heat the remaining 4 cups milk in a medium saucepan until steaming. Remove from heat and whisk vigorously. Whisk the cocoa mixture into the milk and pour into mugs.
