The big V-Day is one week from tomorrow, peeps! Are you ready?
Here is something to warm you and your sweetie up.
There are lots of recipes out there, I've tried a few. I absolutely adore this concoction I put together tonight!! It's thick and rich, with just a hint of extra heat. And the whipped cream on top is positively necessary. This is not a drink for the faint of heart, or for those trying to lose weight (I will be one of those people again in the morning - this was my "day off"). But once you have it, you will not want any others!
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips (or 3 oz. chopped bittersweet chocolate)
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 pinch sea salt
1 pinch chipotle chili powder
1/3 to 1/2 c. additional milk
Combine chocolate chips and 1/2 c. milk in a glass microwave-safe container. Heat 1 minute. Whisk, then return to microwave for 1 additional minute. Whisk in cinnamon, salt and chili powder, whisking until smooth and frothy. Add additional milk. Heat 45 seconds, until hot. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
