With this easy, creamy cocoa recipe in hand, your kids are the baristas (and you help with the heating). Think of this sweet warm-up after skating, sledding, or shoveling snow.
hot cocoa

The cinnamon cream that tops this cocoa is made the old-fashioned way—by shaking heavy cream, sugar, and cinnamon in a covered jar. If one child gets tired of shaking, pass it on to the next child. It's a group effort—and worth every minute of prep when you taste the delicious result that looks so fancy and tastes so good. Tip: Add a teensy pinch of salt to bring out the chocolate flavor.

What You’ll Need
  • ⅔ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cinnamon sticks (optional)
What to Do
  1. To make the cinnamon cream, put the heavy cream, sugar, and cinnamon into a container. Cover tightly. Shake the container until the cream looks like whipped cream.
  2. Heat milk over low heat for 5 minutes. Add the chocolate chips and a pinch of cinnamon. Stir until the chocolate melts.
  3. Pour the cocoa into mugs and add a pinch of salt. Top with a dollop of cinnamon cream. Add a cinnamon stick, if desired, and stir.
