  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne


  • Combine chocolate, butter, and sugar together in a large saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.
  • Once the chocolate mixture is smooth, add the milk and continue stirring constantly for 2-3 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add in all remaining ingredients.
