I was messing around in my kitchen one day and was craving hot cocoa. Since I only had dark chocolate on hand, I used that, and for a festive touch added cinnamon. Pour into a mug and top with whipped cream or marshmallows, if desired. Serve hot.

Tips

For creamier cocoa, use more heavy cream. I also like to put whipped cream at the bottom of the mug and pour the cocoa over it.
