A warm cup of this comforting Cinnamon Hot Chocolate is all you need for these cold snow days.
Hello there. There is nothing more comforting than a fireplace and a cup of hot chocolate. This is my favorite time of the year and these little things are joys for me. Today I am sharing my version of hot chocolate, which I and my family relish during these cold months.
This is a very simple recipe with just a few basic ingredients. I have added a hot cocoa mix to milk, along with vanilla extract. To spice it up and give it a warm aroma and flavor, I have added a little bit of cinnamon powder. And for a little extra boost of flavor, I have used Nutella. Now who can resist Nutella, I know I cannot. Finally while serving, I added some marshmallows and garnished it with chocolate syrup.
Cinnamon has it’s own health benefits, which in turn soothes the body during these cold days. It is an excellent source of manganese, fiber, and calcium. It also controls blood sugar level. Just a smell of cinnamon boost’s brain function. This Cinnamon Hot Chocolate recipe is great for little ones 1 year and above. For mom and dad’s version, you can add some vanilla or hazelnut liquor. Just make sure you add the liquor at the time of adding Nutella and give it a good stir.
Isn’t this a perfect way to end a cold winter day?
