Spicy Comfort Hot Cocoa

Comforting Chili Hot Cocoa Chocolate Drink Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

It’s been a rough day and this was so needed! Between the stresses of the holidays and daily life, this is a nice pick me up to help set you back on your feet. I only drink this cocoa on stressful days before Christmas. My only regret is that I didn’t have any cream to whip up, but it tasted great even with the humble marshmallow.

  • 3 Tablespoons Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1/8 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Pinch of Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Nutmeg
  • Pinch of Cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
