Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Baking posts are exactly what they sound like – posts where I share recent recipes that I’ve tried out in the kitchen. Baking posts will be published on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month.

It’s in the middle of winter where I live, which means it’s the perfect weather for curling up with a warm drink (and a good book of course).

Since I have such a huge sweet tooth and love almost chocolate anything, I’m a huge fan of hot chocolate. In the last few weeks I’ve been really curious about easy flavored hot chocolate recipes to try out. I fell in love with Starbucks’ Snickerdoodle hot chocolate and knew I had to try a similar recipe. And so I went to Pinterest, I found this cinnamon hot chocolate recipe from Carly at Lipgloss and Crayons.

What I like about this recipe is that it’s really easy and doesn’t have a ton of ingredients.


  • 1 tablespoon of Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 2-3 teaspoons of Sugar
  • 3/4 cup of Milk


The only thing you have to do is combine all the above ingredients together and heat! You can’t beat how easy that is!

My Thoughts

Okay, so it was a little too cinnamon-y for me, but I think that may be because I tripled the recipe since I was making it for more than just myself. Sure, it’s only 3 teaspoons, but it was really strong. So just be aware that it could still come out strong if you’re making for just yourself.

While not my super favorite, it was still enjoyable.

Are you getting winter weather and curling up with a warm drink?

    • That’s a good idea! I think sprinkling could have been better for me. I may have tried Bailey’s in my hot chocolate the other weekend … :)
