I made something just now and since it's so tasty, I thought I would share.  My measurements are not precise, but they can be figured out easily enough. This might make a nice gift mix too. 

It's cold. I decided to make hot chocolate.  I put about 2 1/2 cups of milk (make once, drink thrice) into a pan with some sugar. I have cube sugar and I think I put in a terrifying 8 cubes.  I also put in (hold onto your socks because this is the sinful part), about 1/2 cup of cream.  I had it in the fridge and didn't want it to go to waste. 

While that was heating I added one tablespoon of instant coffee and about 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus about a small capful of vanilla.  Then I added a good tablespoon of dark cocoa power and whisked everything to combine and finish warming. 

Mmmmmm.   I'm sure many of you have tried this, and now I see why.

That sounds really good. You could use a molinillo instead of a whisk, next time, if you really want to make it authentic.  Wink If you are going to make this into a gift, you might consider including one. They can be really pretty.

Molinillos are used to mix and kinda whip up the hot chocolate. You use them by submerging the larger end in the mug (or saucepan) filled with warm milk and chocolate, then putting the handle between your palms and rubbing your palms together...kind of like you're trying to start a fire.  Cheesy

Really would make a nice gift.
