Hot Chocolate for Adults Only
Half and half (light cream)
Almond or hazelnut flavored liqueur
Combine milk, half-and-half and sugar in a saucepan and bring up to simmer (so that bubbles are just beginning to form around the edge of the pan). Very slowly add about 1 cup of the milk mixture to the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly. Pour chocolate mixture back into remaining milk mixture. Stir in rum and liqueur.
Pour into mugs and top with a dollop of whipped cream and a cinnamon stick. Serve at once.
Melt chocolate chips over simmering water or in microwave according to manufacturer's directions.
