Christmas Drinks: White Hot Chocolate

This is a recipe we got from the Better Homes and Gardens site. So yummy!

3 cups half-and-half or light cream
3/4 cup vanilla-flavor baking pieces, or vanilla-flavor candy coating, chopped
3 cinnamon sticks
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract
Slivers of vanilla-flavor candy coating (optional)
Ground cinnamon (optional)

Combine 1/4 cup of the half-and-half or light cream, vanilla baking pieces or chopped candy coating, stick cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan; whisk over low heat until vanilla baking pieces or candy is melted. Remove stick cinnamon.

Add remaining half-and-half or light cream. Whisk until heated through. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and almond extract. Serve warm in cups or mugs; top with slivers of vanilla-flavor candy coating and sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired. Makes 5 (6-ounce) servings.
