Mocha Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Who doesn’t love a thick rich hot chocolate on a cold winter day? I make this Mocha Cinnamon Hot Chocolate whenever I need a fix of bonheur. It always reminds me of the chocolat chaud that I get at Le Flore sur L’Ile whenever I am in Paris. 
 A good hot chocolate starts with the best chocolate available.

Mocha Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
2 1/2 cups of water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup sifted cocoa unsweetened powder
1- 3.5 oz bar of 60% chocolate in pieces
1- 3.5 oz bar of 90% chocolate in pieces
1 tablespoon Instant expresso
1 teaspoon Cinnamon 
1. Bring, water, sugar, cocoa powder, instant expresso and cinnamon to a boil in a 2 quart saucepan. Stir to mix. 
2. Lower heat and mix in chocolate pieces and simmer for 15 minutes stirring from time to time.
3. Strain through a fine mesh sieve.
4. Let rest for several hours and reheat in a double boiler. 
5. Enjoy!
