Frothy Hot Chocolate
From EatingWell: January/February 1991
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.
- 4 1/2 cups low-fat milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup coffee liqueur, such as Kahlua or Tia Maria (optional)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Whisk together 1/2 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.
