Rich dark chocolate blend with cayenne, cardamom, and cinnamon to make the most decadent spicy hot chocolate recipe that everyone will love.

Death by Spicy Hot Chocolate Recipe

When I was growing up I always had hot chocolate out of a packet, actually when I think about it, almost every beverage I had besides milk and water, came out of some magic packet of sugar and, well, food coloring.  

 It wasn’t until I became a real food foodie that I even thought to try making hot chocolate from scratch.

I don’t do low fat. ever. so this recipe uses a lot of my favorite ingredient heavy whipping cream.

You could make this with a lower fat milk, nut milk or coconut milk but if you want to roll your taste buds around a lot of yumminess try making this as is at least once.  

This Spicy Hot Chocolate Recipe has a little kick and while I drink it straight out the cup, my husband likes to tame it down a bit and add it to his coffee.
