Spiced Hot Chocolate

The more you whip this beverage, the better the result will be! I highly recommend using a hand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment.
  • 1/2 c. cocoa
  • 1 T. flour
  • 1/4 c. dark brown sugar
  • 4 c. milk
  • 3 cloves -- whole
  • 1 cinnamon stick -- broken
  • 2 T. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix the cocoa and flour in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the brown sugar, milk, cloves, and cinnamon stick. Heat the mixture until almost boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly; reduce the heat. Simmer uncovered for 5 minutes (DO NOT boil). Remove the mixture from the heat; remove the cloves and cinnamon. Stir in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat with wire whisk or hand mixer until foamy. Pour the mixture into mugs. If desired, serve with whipped cream and cinnamon sticks.
