Simply divine! The Aztecs drank a similar chili-chocolate beverage ceremonially. Leave it to the ancients to show us the really good stuff! Yes, it is addictive --not that there's anything WRONG with that! Try it and join the multitude of chili-chocolate lovers. It is, I tell you (and the Aztecs agree) nectar of the gods!

this stuff is insanely gooooood! Its my go to recipe for hot chocolate any time of the year. I'm hopelessly addicted to it. I use demerara sugar with a split vanilla bean i leave in it for flavor. I also use 1 tsp. of hersheys dark choc. powder in it. The recipe is quite simply the best i've found on the internet yet. Kudos and comendations to the lady from "Hudson", where ever that is. YOU ROCK!
