All your hot cocoa recipes look yummy. I’m sure to try.

How about Spiced Hot Chocolate? Bet you could come up with something great for that. There is (or was?), a fabulous one in Portland OR chocolate shop who’s name eludes me (2 locations), dark thick, rich and spicy – demitasse size. Yum!

Hi Yosh,

Cocoa powder is a great secret ingredient for making chili and a natural pairing for any chile pepper. Think mole sauce and its flavor profile.

Hot cocoa mix, on the other hand, has added sugar, so it may be too sweet for any chili con carne recipes.
