½ cup water
3 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped or broken into small pieces
2 cups milk

Return the saucepan to the stove over medium heat and gradually whisk in the milk, cinnamon, and almond fl avoring. Cook until the mixture comes to a full boil, whisking frequently. Lift the pan off the burner until the bubbling subsides. Then place the pan back on the burner and bring it to a boil again, continuing to whisk frequently, until the mixture is smooth.
