Chestnut Hot Chocolate
Indulge in the creamiest, richest hot chocolate. Our recipe uses roasted chestnuts and a touch of cinnamon to take that decadence over the edge.
(about 1/2 cup)
(1 1/2 cups)
Finely chop the chestnuts and place in a saucepan. Add the milk.
Cut the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the pulp.
Add the vanilla pulp, orange zest, and cinnamon to the saucepan. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Finely chop the chocolate and add to the saucepan, stirring until it is completely melted. Add the honey and stir to combine.
Blend the mixture in a food processor or blender until completely smooth, and divide between two mugs. Top with marshmallows if you like, and serve immediately.
