3 cups milk

1 cup evaporated milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons cornstarch

Pinch ground cinnamon


  1. In a saucepan, combine the milk, evaporated milk and vanilla and warm up over a low heat.
  2. Combine the cocoa powder, sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in a small bowl. Whisk into the warm milk mixture, stirring frequently to prevent it from scorching.
  3. Remove the hot chocolate from the heat just after it has come to a boil. The mixture should be suuuuuper rich and thick!
  4. Cook's Note: For grown-up kids, a shot of brandy, Kahlua, or peppermint schnapps is really yummy!
