Divinity Drink: A White Hot Chocolate

Aunque un poco fuera de época, todavía esta receta puede funcionar para una de estas noches friitas en Puerto Rico.

The wind's howling out there. You're sitting by the fire, pondering New Year's resolutions. Let's make the first one about being good to yourself.
If you have milk, cinnamon and nutmeg left over from your Christmas celebration, you're on the way to creating this delicious treat to warm up a long winter's night.
DIVINITY DRINK
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon maple syrup or maple syrup granules
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg powder
pinch of saffron
2 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions:
In a small pan, combine milk, maple syrup, spices, and baking chocolate pieces. Warm over very low heat until chocolate is melted. (Don't allow it to scald.) Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Warm again over low heat, then serve immediately.
Vary the taste and scent of this heavenly white hot chocolate by substituting almond extract for the vanilla now and then.
