This Gingerbread Hot Chocolate recipe ticks all of my winter hot drink boxes. It is sweet and warm and filled with the spice flavors I’ve come to associate with this time of year. During the long, dark days of winter, I love to whip up a pot of this hot chocolate to heat us up from the inside out!

This recipe is very quick and easy to make too. Start by making a flavored syrup by boiling water with cinnamon, allspice, cloves, sugar and slices fresh ginger. Add milk and cocoa to the syrup and bring to a boil. Serve with whipped cream, gingerbread sugar and gingerbread syrup. You can’t beat it on a cold day!
