How To Make hot cocoa to die for

  • 1
    In desired drinking mug, combine all ingredients and stir until smooth. Should have consistency slightly runnier than cake frosting.
  • 2
    Add hot water...whisk until frothy. I know adding the peppers sounds weird...but you can't tell it's specifically in there. It just adds depth and a little "bite".
