Wow! This is delicious! You can't go wrong with coffee and chocolate in my book, but it is the cinnamon that takes it over the top in this one! I had it warm with brunch today, and it was smooth and spicy and perfect. I have a little saved that I am chilling, and I will try it cold over ice tomorrow.

  1. In a coffeemaker basket - using a filter - combine the coffee grounds and ground cinnamon. Prepare 4 cups of coffee as directed on your coffee maker directions.
  2. As coffee is brewing, in a medium saucepan, combine the milk, sugar, cocoa and vanilla and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes (till small bubbles appear on the sides of the pan) - DO NOT BOIL.
  3. Pour the hot milk mixture into four coffee cups/mugs, then add the cinnamon brewed coffee.
  4. Optional, garnish with cinnamon sticks and a dollop of whipped cream.
