If you enjoy a little kick to your hot chocolate then you might
to take a look at this. I whipped this up the other day using my
standard hot chocolate recipe. The nice thing about this is
that you can
make it as spicy as you want. If you don't want any spice, you can
leave out the cayenne and cinnamon and the grated chocolates and you'll
end up with my hot chocolate recipe which
is also yummy. But this is a
fun and different recipe. You should try it! And make sure you read the
recipe to see a fun way to give it as a gift.
