What You Need:
- 3 ¼ cups milk (2% preferred)
- 6 ounces white chocolate, chopped
- 1 egg, beaten
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
What You'll Need To Do:
Warm up a pan of water and bring to a simmer.
Place your white chocolate in a medium metal bowl in the water. Allow the chocolate to melt as you stir occasionally to avoid it burning. Stir until it it smooth and rich.
Add your cayenne pepper and cinnamon to the chocolate.
Whisk the egg into the chocolate and continue until the mixture is back to it's smooth and rich state. (The bowl should still be heated in the simmering water).
Slowly pour and whisk in one cup of the milk until it is completely blended. This should take you about two minutes.
Next whisk in the remaining milk, raising the heat until it is hot (but not boiling or simmering). You want to avoid a skin forming on the top.
It is ready to drink as soon as it is at your desired temperature. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon to finish it off and serve.
