Embracing a Healthy Family: Delicious Holiday Hot Chocolate & Lenox Wine Glass Giveaway 12/15: WINNER ANNOUNCED

Delicious Holiday Hot Chocolate & Lenox Wine Glass Giveaway 12/15: WINNER ANNOUNCED

CONGRATULATIONS TO....

ReinyDey

An e-mail was just sent and she will have 48 hours to respond.  I would expedite this but I won my set from Lenox back in mid November and have not received them yet so they definitely won't be received in time for Christmas as I found out last night.

Thanks to all that entered!



Winter Greetings® Everyday Goldfinch Mug by Lenox

Ingredients:
  • 4 1/2 cups of low fat or whole milk
  • 1 cup cocoa solids chocolate, broken into small pieces

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional in place of the brandy)
  • 1-2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, to taste
Directions

  • Boil milk in a large heavy based saucepan, remove as boiling point is reached.  Be careful not to scorch.
  • In a small pan, place chocolate and two tablespoons of milk while stirring over a low heat.  Once melted, add the melted chocolate mixture into the remaining milk while stirring well.
  • Add sugar, cinnamon and brandy.
  • Using heatproof glasses or mugs, serve the delicious hot chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream lightly dusted with cocoa powder or cinnamon.
  • Serve with a cinnamon stick for an added extra stirrer.
To Decorate:

  • 6 tablespoons whipped cream
  • 4 teaspoons cocoa powder or ground cinnamon
  • cinnamon stick, for stirrers (optional)

     
Serves four eagerly waiting guests!

I love hot chocolate in the winter and this recipe sounds super yummy. I'm going to have to try the vanilla making. It that a large mason jar? Can't wait to hear how it turns out (in another 4 weeks). We're making some home-made wine. First tasting will be Thanksgiving. It's hard to wait:)

YouthfulTips said...

You will want a large jar. Should hold around 6 cups. You can use any type of jar and in fact, I'm using the bottle. I'm also using bourbon and love the smell already. Let me know how the wine turns out! I've always wanted to try to make some but never have done it.
