For a decadent treat, try a shot of this sweet chocolate drink given a kick with spicy cayenne pepper. So rich and creamy, this hot beverage can be served as dessert!

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (12 fl. oz. each) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk, divided
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups (9 oz.) * NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 1/2 plus 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, divided (optional)

Directions

POUR 1/2 cup evaporated milk into medium mixer bowl; place beaters into mixture. Freeze for about 30 minutes or until ice crystals form around edge of bowl.

HEAT remaining evaporated milk, water, morsels, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne pepper in medium saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Do not boil. Set aside.

REMOVE chilled evaporated milk from freezer. Beat on high speed for 1 minute or until very frothy. Add remaining vanilla extract, remaining cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Continue beating for 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture forms soft peaks.

POUR hot chocolate into eight 4-ounce demitasse cups and immediately dollop with foam topping.
