Have you ever combined a cinnamon roll with chocolate? Well, I have a cinnamon roll hot chocolate recipe for you. This is when I teach you how to make the cinnamon hot chocolate recipe.

Cinnamon Roll Hot Chocolate Recipe Delight!

This cinnamon hot chocolate recipe is a traditional winter drink that has been around for centuries, or at least in my head it has been around for centuries.

It was originally made with cinnamon sticks, sugar, and milk. It is now usually made with cocoa powder, ground cinnamon powder, sugar, and milk.

The addition of cinnamon to the drink provides somewhat of a spicy flavor which many people enjoy in cold weather.

Also, I have to say “somewhat” because I do not consider cinnamon to be a spicy ingredient, however, cinnamon does give a kick to what dish it is a part of.

Adding Cinnamon To Hot Chocolate

Chocolate and cinnamon are two ingredients that can make your hot chocolate taste better and more flavorful.

Cinnamon is a great way to add a nice, subtle flavor to your hot chocolate.

But, if you really want to make the cinnamon flavor stand out, sprinkle some of the spice on top of the whipped cream before adding it to your drink.

I am telling you, sprinkling cinnamon on the whipped cream that is on top of the hot chocolate will change your life.

You can also mix cocoa powder with the milk before heating it up.

This will give you a richer, more robust flavor that’s perfect for people who love chocolate as much as they love their morning cup of coffee.

Personally, I would add cocoa powder to the milk, while the milk is being heated up. The reason for this is that the heat will help the milk and cocoa powder blend better.

What Can You Add To Hot Chocolate To Make It Taste Better?

The options that you can add to hot chocolate to make it taste better are endless. Of course, you have cinnamon, peanut butter, coconut, ginger, hazelnut, nutmeg, brown sugar, and so on.

Also, we cannot forget about the whiskey, just in case you want to turn your hot chocolate into an adult beverage.

If you do not like whiskey, then that is okay. Spice rum will get the job done as well. Some may even say that spiced rum is better for hot chocolate than whiskey.

This is a non-alcoholic recipe, but if you want to add whiskey or rum to this cinnamon roll hot chocolate recipe, then be my guest.

What Are The Benefits Of Cinnamon?

Cinnamon is packed full of benefits that even the healthiest person can appreciate. Antioxidants come to mind when I think of the benefits of cinnamon because it is full of antioxidants.

Also, cinnamon assists with controlling the levels of your blood sugar, preventing heart disease, and reducing inflammation.

Furthermore, this gives you more of a reason to make the cinnamon roll hot chocolate recipe.
