Ultimate Hot Chocolate

I saw this recipe for Hot Chocolate about a week ago on Our Best Bites and thought I would give it a try. I made it on Friday evening to take with me to the High School Football game. It kept me nice and warm while I watched my daughter cheer her school on to victory. It also tasted much better than the powdered stuff they sell at the concession stand! Sunday was also their school Sports Awards Banquet, so I decided to make cupcakes with my handmade cupcake toppers - I think they look so cute and really add something special to a party or event.
Ultimate Hot Chocolate
from My Best Bites
2 - 1 oz. squares of unsweetened baking chocolate
1 - 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
4 c water
1 tsp vanilla
In your microwave or in a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the chocolate and the sweetened condensed milk until the chocolate is completely melted (about 2 - 2 1/2 minutes in the microwave). Whisk in vanilla, combine completely and set aside.
In a larger sauce pan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate mixture. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon if desired. Serves about 6.
