Chipotle Hot Chocolate

1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon chipotle powder
- Warm almond milk over low heat in a saucepan until hot, but not boiling.
- Break chocolate into small pieces, add to a small glass bowl, and place glass bowl over a small saucepan filled halfway with water. Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat. Let chocolate sit over water until completely smooth.
- Remove very carefully from heat and stir in cinnamon, chipotle, and cloves. When spices are blended, slowly mix warm milk into chocolate, stirring constantly until it’s all combined.
- Divide between mugs and enjoy while still warm
