Cooking Instructions

Place the milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon and vanilla in a stainless steel saucepan over medium heat. Whisk to combine the ingredients. Allow the milk to come to a gentle boil, whisking often. Place the chocolate in a mixing bowl. Pour about 1/2 cup of the heated milk over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate is smooth and completely melted.
