It's Christmas in July!!! This is the ONLY way I make cocoa. It's rich, decadent and a special treat...winter OR summer (in the air conditioning of course).

How to Make Hot Cocoa to die for


  • 1In desired drinking mug, combine all ingredients and stir until smooth. Should have consistency slightly runnier than cake frosting.
  • 2Add 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".
  • 3Can top it off with mini marshies or whipped cream...but seriously, it doesn't need it.
