Hot Vanilla

I love hot drinks! Especially hot chocolate and hot apple cider. They are so soothing and comforting, and with all of this crazy snow, that is just what we need! This one is DEFINITELY a keeper! In Jake's words, "Yummmmm, that is the stuff!" It's fast, it's easy, it doesn't require a whole lot of ingredients you wouldn't already have on hand, and it's EXTREMELY tasty! I got this recipe here.

from Real Mom Kitchen

1/2 cup of whipping cream
1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup
Dash of cinnamon
1 cup of milk (per hot vanilla)
2 teaspoons of sugar (per hot vanilla)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (per hot vanilla)

1. Start with the topping. In a medium bowl, whip 1/2 cup of whipping cream until it's frothy. Add 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup and a dash of cinnamon, then continue to whip the mixture until everything is well blended and peaks form. Makes enough to top about 6 drinks.

2. For each hot vanilla, microwave 1 cup of milk and 2 teaspoons of sugar in a mug for 90 seconds. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Top with a dollop of chocolate cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup, and a dash of cinnamon.
