HOT HOT HOT Chocolate

HOT HOT HOT Chocolate

This is the greatest recipe! On a cold day, this will warm you up fast (and possibly clear out your nasal passages at the same time). Though this hot chocolate is non-alcoholic, it almost tastes like an adult drink, the flavors are so complex, but kids will love the bang of the cayenne mixed with the sweetness of the chocolate.

  • 1/2 cup Droste brand cocoa, or any good quality cocoa
