Spiced Hot Chocolate

This hot chocolate is so easy to make and is so rich to drink. It always makes us slow down and enjoy it and relax. Ben and I make it together before his nap. He stacks up some hatboxes, calls them train cars, and pretends he is on the Polar Express. Nothing helps you go to sleep like a full belly of warm chocolate milk :)  Get the very easy how to after the jump.
Ingredients are easy, and I approximate everything.

2 c. milk
1/4 to 1/2 tsp cloves (when making for Ben, I use ground, when making for me, I use whole.  I just like the flavor more)
1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp or more ground cinnamon
dash of vanilla
2 c. (I use two BIG handfuls of dark chocolate chips)

We store our chocolate chips in that big biscotti container.  We eat a LOT of chocolate chips in this house...

1. heat milk on medium
2. add spices and stir
3. add chips a handful at a time and stir till melted

Pour into cups (will make one cup each.  Or if you are like me, two cups for one!) and serve.
