Sun-Kissed Hot Chocolate
Serve this delightful hot chocolate as a gift of love... and make sure the guests kiss the cook!
Combine the milk, chocolate chips, orange peel, espresso powder, granulated sugar and nutmeg (to taste) in a heavy-bottomed, medium saucepan. Stir constantly over low heat until the chocolate and the sugar melt. Increase the heat and bring to milk to steaming, stirring often.
Remove the pan from heat and using a wire whisk, whip the cocoa until it is frothy. Return the pan to medium heat and whisk again until frothy. Discard the orange peel. Pour the hot chocolate into four mugs or glass Irish coffee mugs.
For garnish, grate extra nutmeg on top of the hot chocolate.
Serve with a bowl of freshly popped popcorn.
