Mexican Hot Chocolate

Thinking of hot chocolate reminds us the cold winter days where you have to have a cup of it. Right now Southern California is maintaining low temps, which made me crave for a hot chocolate. It is suppose to be summer but for past 2 weeks the temps are running little low while reminding of sweet fall time. So I'm sharing a recipe for those days you need a kick to boost your energy.

2 Cups 2% fat milk
1 Cinnamon stick 
1 Anise star
4 Tbs Semi sweetened chocolate powder.
1/4 Cup Brown sugar ( Adjust acc. to your taste)

Heat a big pot with 2 cups of milk. To that add cinnamon & Anise. Stir well & let it boil for 10mins in low heat with closed lid.To that add chocolate & sugar.Stir it to dissolve sugar. Let it boil in low heat for 5mins. Then switch off heat & serve it hot.
