Spicy Hot Chocolate

Spicy Hot Chocolate

Last Sunday was cold and pouring down with rain, and well, this is London, is raining every other day so I decided that the only thing that was going to shake me out of the covers was a pungent hot chocolate. 

This piquant mélange is ready in no time, so you can swiftly go back under your blankets.

  • 2 cups semi-skimmed milk
  • 4 tablespoons good quality cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • A pinch hot chili powder

In a medium size pan, heat the milk under a medium flame. Whisk in the cocoa powder, cinnamon, honey and chili powder until well combined. If you are feeling adventurous have it with whipped cream and dust some chili powder on top.
