Hot Chocolate

  • 1 cup milk any percentage
  • 2 cinnamon sticks broken into 3 or 4 pieces each*
  • 2 ounces (about ⅓ cup) chopped good-quality white chocolate high-quality chips are fine
  • Pinch of salt optional

Optional Toppings


  • In a small saucepan, heat milk until steaming. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon stick pieces. Allow them to steep for at least 5 minutes.
  • Use a fork or slotted spoon to remove cinnamon stick pieces. Return pot to medium heat and add white chocolate and a pinch of salt. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is steaming hot.
  • Pour into an 8-ounce mug, top with optional toppings, and enjoy!


*If your sticks were brittle and broke into smaller pieces, that’s fine. Just strain the milk through a fine mesh strainer before adding the chocolate.
