Spiced Hot Chocolate


Yields 2 mugs

2 cups of milk (your choice if you want low-fat)

1/4 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips

1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips

1/4 teaspoon of allspice pods, cracked

2 cinnamon sticks

1/8 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg

Marshmallows or Whipped Cream for serving

Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan (minus the marshmallows, of course) and bring to a low simmer while you whisk frequently.  If you would like it more chocolatey, add a bit more. 

Take off heat and cover--steep for 5-10 minutes.  Strain hot chocolate and top with toasted marshmallows or whipped cream.  Yum!
