Hot Chocolate Espresso

Servings: Makes 2 (1 cup) servings
Not for the worried weight watcher, this creamy drink is pure indulgence but just right for after ice skating or sledding on a wintry day.

1 cup strong hot coffee, or espresso
2 to 6 teaspoons sugar
1 cup cream, or 1/2 cup half-and-half and 1/2 cup milk
3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa

For Garnish:
Whipped cream
2 tablespoons milk chocolate, grated
Cinnamon sticks

In 2 large cups or glass mugs, mix the coffee (or espresso) and sugar. In a small saucepan over low heat, warm the cream. Add the cocoa and mix well. Add the cream mixture to the coffee and top with a dollop of whipped cream and the grated chocolate. Serve with a cinnamon stick.
