Heat milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and semisweet chocolate chunks in heavy medium
saucepan, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted. Set aside.

to make thick paste. Whisk in milk mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat

Note: Whole milk tastes better than 1 or 2 percent in this recipe, but if
you are watching calories you can make it with lowered-fat products. On the
other hand, if you feel like gilding the lily, try serving the cocoa
garnished with dollops of whipped cream on top.
