Ginger Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

A steaming cup of hot chocolate on a snowy winter day is kind of the best, and let’s be serious, the powdered packets are for amateurs.

To get all of the health benefits and flavor of dark chocolate, we use the real stuff, then add warming spices like ginger and cinnamon.

Sip it by the fire, with a really soft blanket, preferably aprés ski.

Dark chocolate is filled with heart-healthy cocoa flavanols. Ginger adds a flavor kick (while also kicking inflammation to the curb), and cinnamon is both warming and stress-reducing.
