Spiked Hot Chocolate Snow Day

This hot chocolate recipe was a delicious change up from the traditional Bailey's or Kahula spiking. The orange and cinnamon made it taste like one of those chocolate oranges. It was just what we needed for our little snowy adventure!
 The secret is to start with a good base. You could use water and a powder mix but I brought out the big guns for our first major snow of the season: milk and chocolate shavings.
Hot Chocolate with Orange Liqueur and Cinnamon
(Pinterest find!)
1 cup milk
5 tablespoons chocolate shavings
1 cinnamon stick
2 tablespoons orange liqueur
Cinnamon for sprinkling
Whipped cream
1. In a small pot bring the milk and cinnamon stick to a simmer.
2. Whisk in the chocolate shavings.
3. Remove from heat and whisk in orange liqueur.
4. Top with whipped cream and a generous shake of cinnamon.
5. Go play in the snow!

Time to cross off some Winter Bucket List items!
The park was empty and snow-quiet. Only our footprints decorated the pathways.
 I couldn't resist the 1st snow angel of the season!
 These nifty little seed pods looked like snow covered ornaments.
 Back in the apartment, keep the snow coming!
My fingers are crossed for a snow day.
