The perfect Valentine's Day treat or dessert on any chilly winter night!
Recipe type: dessert
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup organic, pasture-raised half & half
  • 2 Tbsp fair trade cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp fair trade dark chocolate chunks or chips (use 2 Tbsp for less intense chocolate flavor)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground ancho chile powder
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • tiny pinch of salt
  1. Place all ingredients except the chocolate chunks/chips in a small heavy-bottomed pot.
  2. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture has simmered for 3-4 minutes (simmering helps the spices incorporate into the cream).
  3. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, then blend with a milk foamer for extra foam and smoothness.
  4. Drink as-is or top with a marshmallow.
If you like spice, add a little more chile powder and/or cinnamon.
