We’re supposed to be heading into summer here in New Zealand but as I type this the heat pump is on and it is blowing a gale outside. So I just made a spicy hot chocolate! Warming and comforting with a lovely spicy hum from the cayenne pepper. You could use sweetened drinking chocolate – just omit the honey.
Ingredients (for two drinks):
2 cups milk of choice
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp honey (or another sweetener)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Put all ingredients into a saucepan and heat until the liquid almost reaches boiling point. Whisk until foamy and serve right away in your cup of choice.
