Place the chocolate disc in a saucepan, pour in the milk and add the cinnamon stick. Over medium-low heat simmer and stir often to help break up and dissolve the chocolate. Once chocolate is dissolved, cover and simmer under low heat for another 10 minutes -- careful don't let it boil over!
Remove the cinnamon stick and discard. Using a whisk or the traditional molinillo begin to froth up the hot chocolate. Continue until you have a thick froth or until you're desired taste. Serve and enjoy! Makes 2 large servings or 4 small ones.
For the spiked version add a shot to each cup, or as much Kahlua as desired. Salud!
*In the photos I've used Silk almond milk * In the video I used cashew milk. Either work great, but the almond froths up better than the cashew.** If you don't have a molinillo you can use a whisk instead.
