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.

1 teaspoon ground ginger

Ginger Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
  1. Combine milk, ginger and cinnamon in saucepan over medium-low heat until almost boiling.
  2. Add chocolate, stirring until fully melted.
  3. Whisk until frothy and serve immediately.


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.
