A cup of this creamy, spicy hot cocoa drink makes coming in out of the cold even more of a treat.


  • 3 cups half-and-half or light cream*
  • 3/4 cup vanilla-flavor baking pieces or vanilla-flavor candy coating, chopped
  • 3 inches stick cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • Slivers of vanilla-flavor candy coating (optional)
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)


  1. Combine 1/4 cup of the half-and-half or light cream, vanilla baking pieces or chopped candy coating, stick cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan; whisk over low heat until vanilla baking pieces or candy is melted. Remove stick cinnamon.
  2. Add remaining half-and-half or light cream. Whisk until heated through. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and almond extract. Serve warm in cups or mugs; top with slivers of vanilla-flavor candy coating and sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired. Makes 5 (6-ounce) servings.


  • To create the foamy layer on top, blend some of the hot chocolate mixture in a blender container until frothy, and add to each serving.


  • * To reduce fat, you may substitute low-fat milk or evaporated fat-free milk for the half-and-half.
