Want the best hot cocoa recipe ever? I thought you might! This spicy Aztec Hot Chocolate is my all-time favorite. It’s made with real chocolate, spiced with cinnamon and vanilla, and has a little kick from a chili pepper. It’s the best!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Dark chocolate, chopped

  • 2 Cups Milk

  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon

  • 1 Tsp Vanilla

  • 1 Chili pepper, split in half and seeds removed

  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Sugar

  • Dash of Salt

Directions

  • Melt the chocolate with a little of the milk in a small pot over medium heat. Whisk in the remaining milk, the cinnamon, vanilla, and dash of salt. Add the chili pepper to the pot and bring the pot almost to a boil.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and let it sit for 10 mins. Remove and discard the chili pepper.
  • Whisk in the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, and taste until it is a sweetness you like. If you are using the brandy or Grand Marnier, add it to the pot
  • Pour the spicy Aztec hot chocolate into mugs and serve!
