Cinnamon and almond blend perfectly with chocolate in this soothing beverage. Mexican-style sweet chocolate, flavored with sugar, cinnamon, and ground almonds, can also be used to prepare this beverage. Coarsely chop the chocolate and whisk in hot milk until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is frothy.
