Mexican Spiced Hot Chocolate

Hands-on Time:  5 minutes
Total Time:  5 minutes

  • Hot chocolate
  • 2 pinches ground chili powder
  • 2 pinches ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp sweetened whipped cream
  1.  Mix the hot cocoa with half the chili powder and cinnamon.  Top with the whipped cream. Sprinkle with the remaining chili powder and cinnamon.

This is my favorite of the three Real Simple ‘Start with Hot Chocolate’ recipes.  Don’t worry it’s not spicy.  It’s hard to say what the spices do.  I think they just enhance the flavor overall and warm it up even more.  The warm flavor kind of reminds me of warm cider or buttered rum.  No matter, I think you should definitely give it a try!
