Today is a Mexican hot chocolate kind of day. I had a nice warm cup of this before I went to work today. It was just what I needed before I hit the rain and train delays.
Place the milk and sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Off the heat, stir in the chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper with a wooden spoon and allow to steep for 3 minutes. Reheat the hot chocolate over low heat until it simmers.
Strain the chocolate into a measuring cup and pour into mugs. Stir with cinnamon sticks, if desired.
Yield:2 to 3 cups
