I found this in “The Spice Cookbook” by Avanelle Day and Lillie Stuckey. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.


  1. Warm the cinnamon and the milk in a saucepan – be sure not to boil the milk.
  2. Carefully stir in the chocolate until it is melted.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Beat the mixture until it is foamy.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

LOVE the cinnomon with the chocolate! This is a keeper of a recipe

This was delicious! I used Green and Blacks Maya Gold chocolate - bitter chocolate with a hint of orange and spices. Along with the cinnamon it made a delicious drink. I didn't add any extra sugar, and just whisked it to a light froth with a balloon whisk.

I made half this recipe for ZWT II. Don't have a molinillo either, so I tried whisking & didn't get the froth I hoped for. I sure got froth when I used my hand-held blender for a short time tho & I enjoyed the result. Thx for posting.
