  • Pour milk into a pot over low heat.

  • Keep it on low heat the entire time to prevent burning.

  • Add the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract to the milk.

  • Stir regularly for at least 30 minutes to ensure the chocolate and milk do not burn.

  • Once hot, put canned whipped cream into a mixing bowl and stir it with a spoon. This removes the extra bubbles making it look fancy and smooth.

  • Sprinkle a line of ground cinnamon across the mug.

  • Ladle the thick and creamy hot chocolate into a mug. Spoon the smooth whipped cream on top.
