Brandy Hot Chocolate for January Nights

Sorry, but I really don't buy into that 
whole January cleanse thing- it's not like I need to fit into 
a gown for the Golden Globes.
Of course, we are trying to eat extra healthy
and with THAT, rewards are - a must!

Hot Chocolate With Citrus, Cinnamon and Brandy

Serves 8
  • 6 cups half-and-half
  • One 4-inch cinnamon stick
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup brandy (personally- I would up this)
How perfect does that sound??
So have a light dinner- salmon with 
some quinoa and a salad on the side
and after the dishes are put away, sit down with this delectable 
cup of yummy and the latest installment of Jimmy Fallon.
Roaring fire-optional.
You're welcome!
