Cold Orange & Cardamom Cocoa

I love cold and hot cocoas. I especially like the ones that are spicy. This treasure certainly hits the spot. I hope that you will enjoy this lovely treat.

Make ice cubes with your leftover coffee. It really adds extra flavor to your cold drinks.

*Please note: 2 hr cook time is actually 2 hrs chilling time.
