A Hot Chocolate Collage-Black and White Wednesday #67

An easy microwave hot chocolate recipe

Really Hot Chocolate

3 cups milk
1/3 cup grated semisweet chocolate
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg

In a microwave-safe container, cook milk on high for 2 minutes. Stir in the chocolate, sugar and cinnamon. In a separate container, whisk egg until blended and add to the chocolate mixture.

Return container to the microwave and cook on high for 3-4 minutes  until foamy taking care not to let the mixture boil.  Whisk until smooth and pour into 4 small cups. Float marshmallows on top and sprinkle with grated chocolate, if desired. Serves 3-4. Original recipe on Allrecipes.
