Decadent Hot Chocolate, the easy way!

I earned the eternal loyalty of my coworkers on Valentine’s Day, when I used some leftover chocolate to make this drink. Then, after thinking about it, I gussied it up more. Super-simple to make, and you can do whatever you want with it!

6 oz dark chocolate
1tbsp cream

Heat in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until melted. Season with: 1/4 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp sugar, pinch of chipotle pepper, two drops orange extract, pinch of cinnamon.

Add 2 cups milk, whisking into chocolate (more or less, depending on how thick you want it.).

Strain into cups, top with whipped cream, dust with black pepper. (seriously, so good!)
