What You Need:
(Makes: 4 servings)
1/3 cup of ground coffee (not instant coffee granules)
3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 cup of milk
2 to 3 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of baking cocoa
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
4 cinnamon sticks, (optional)
Whipped cream, (optional)
What to Do:
STEP 1) In a coffeemaker basket, combine the coffee and ground cinnamon*. Prepare 4 cups brewed coffee according to manufacturer's directions.
STEP 2) Meanwhile, combine the milk, sugar, cocoa and vanilla in a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until small bubbles appear on the sides of the pan, stirring occasionally (do not boil).
STEP 3) Pour the hot milk mixture into four coffee cups, and then add cinnamon-flavored coffee. Garnish with cinnamon sticks and whipped cream if desired.
STEP 4) Sip & Enjoy!
*Note: It’s very important to add the cinnamon with the coffee granules in the basket of your coffee maker so it will blend. If you try to add the cinnamon directly to the coffee later, it will not blend.
