This is a great warm chocolate treat. I made this with milk chocolate and left out the sugar. I like the addition of salt in this recipe. It really gives the chocolate a little more definition in taste. Made and Reviewed as the recipe of the day in the Comfort Cafe - Thanks! :)

Made for Comfort Cafe 2009 recipe of the Day. We thought this tasted quite good. The hints of cinnamon in the choco/coffee drink made this different from the others but enjoyable none the less. I thought it was a bit sweet for me but the others thought it was perfect. For myself I will reduce the sugar by a T next time so I can drink all 3 cups. :-) Thank you.
