COLD DECEMBER WINTER EVENING WARMER

Folk Magazine Hot ChocolateJust a quick little evening share, this beautiful picture and recipe arrived in my email inbox this morning and I had to pass it on..

Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
3 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
A few drops of almond extract
Whipped cream, chocolate shavings and cinnamon sticks for garnish.

Cut chocolate into pieces and place in blender or food processor. Add sugar and cinnamon. Cover and blend or process until finely ground. Cook and stir chocolate mixture and milk in a large saucepan over low heat about 10 minutes or until chocolate melts. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vanilla and almond extract. Beat with a rotary beater until very frothy. Serve in mugs. Top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and cinnamon sticks if desired. Makes about 4 (8-ounce) servings.

    Hi there,

    Just so you are aware, FOLK Magazine has ripped a lot of people off over the last few years. Subscribers never received their magazines. Customers on their online store didn’t receive their goods or a refund – and if they complained on social media then their comments were deleted and their accounts were blocked. Companies paid to be advertised in issues which were never printed – and they weren’t refunded.

    For more information, please check out the Facebook page ‘Folk Subscribers’ where people share their experiences. Most losses are less than $20 but some are up to $2000. Their treatment of customers and small businesses is awful and it needs to be stopped.

    Thanks for reading.

      Hi there Josie,

      No worries. This is an old post but I have unlinked. I left the picture credit for the photographer, I have been watching the weird erratic FOLK behaviours unfolding on IG so thought something was up! Will leave the post and your comment as others will find it informative I am sure!
