Spiced Hot Chocolate with Rum

It's getting cold outside and you need something hot to drink. And chocolate. And booze.

Total time: 12 minutes
Serves 2

  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate (I like using chocolate with chilies in it), broken into small pieces
  • 2 C milk
  • 1 3-inch piece cinnamon
  • 2 star anise pods
  • 4 cloves
  • 3-4 Tbsp dark rum

In a saucepan heat the milk with the cinnamon, star anise, and cloves. Simmer gently for 10 minutes, until the milk is fragrant. Take off the heat and strain to remove the spices. Ddd the chocolate pieces, whisking until the chocolate is melted. Stir in the rum to taste and divide between two mugs.
