  • Pour milk and cinnamon into a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium low heat for 2-3 minutes until the cinnamon is evenly dispersed. Whisk occasionally to prevent the milk from burning.
  • Add cocoa powder, chocolate chips, honey or maple syrup (if using), vanilla extract, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and salt. Whisk frequently, until the chocolate is melted, about 3 minutes.
  • Pour the hot chocolate into 2 mugs
  • If you want, garnish with coconut whipped cream, cocoa powder, chopped chocolate, and/or cinnamon.
