Maple Cinnamon Hot Cocoa
The holidays are decidedly different this year and many of us are likely seeking a little boost to help the season feel special in light of all the changes that 2020 has brought. We invite you to put on your favorite holiday tunes, find a cozy seat next to your fireplace or holiday tree, and sip a cup (or two!) of this decadently delicious maple cinnamon hot cocoa. It might be just the thing you need to summon your holiday spirit in full force. Cheers!
Gently heat milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until it’s just beginning to simmer. Remove from heat and add the maple syrup, then whisk in the cocoa powder and cinnamon until well incorporated. While the cocoa is cooling a bit, whip the cream using a mixer or by hand until soft peaks form. If you’d like to sweeten the cream, add a splash of maple syrup. Top each mug of cocoa with a generous dollop of whipped cream, then garnish with a cinnamon stick and sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top. Enjoy!
