Yummy yummy yummy in my tummy now! :) I made this espresso beverage for the Comfort Cafe Event January 2009 and I'm so glad I did. Wonderful smooth taste without a lot of sweetness which is perfect! I did not use whipped topping so I just frothed my milk and created foam for the top. Added the cinnamon to the coffee/cocoa mixture first instead of a sprinkle as I prefer it mixed in. Love that flavor. Thanks for sharing a great recipe with us!

This was really good and really easy! I used evaporated milk in place of the cream and a couple shakes of ground cinnamon in with the milk as it was warming because I didn't have cinnamon sticks. I also had it without the whipped cream on top. This isn't real chocolaty.... Tastes a lot like a cappuccino. Will definetly make again!!!
