Ingredients

  • 1-10 oz bag NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Morsels
  • 1/2- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 7 cups milk

Over 21 version

  • 2 oz cinnamon whiskey per mug

Cinnamon Whipped Cream

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar

Instructions

  1. In a heavy bottom pan, add the chocolate morsels, cinnamon and 1/2 cup of the milk. Melt over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Once the chocolate has melted, slowly pour in the remaining milk, stirring in completely before adding more.

  3. After the milk is incorporated, allow to warm through and serve or transfer to a slow cooker and keep on warm.

Whipped cream

  1. Add the whipped cream to a mixer and mix on medium-high, slowly add the remaining ingredients.
  2. Mix forever, literally, until the whip cream has reached the desired consistency. The longer it mixes, the thicker it will be.
  3. Add a dollop or two to the top of each mug, serve and enjoy.
