Philadelphia Ritz Carlton's Basic Hot Chocolate

4 ounces milk
4 ounces heavy cream
1/2 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (to taste)
2-1/2 ounces bittersweet best-quality chocolate, broken into small pieces
1 pinch Mexican cinnamon
1 large tablespoon whipped cream
1 pinch cocoa powder (optional)

Over low heat, warm the milk, heavy cream, and sugar in a saucepan. Add the chocolate and the cinnamon, and continue heating - whisking constantly - until chocolate melts. Do not let mixture come to a boil.

Pour into a cup and, just before serving, place the large tablespoon of whipped cream on top and sprinkle a bit of cocoa powder over the top for garnish, if desired."
