At breakfast they serve a wonderfully spicy-sweet hot chocolate that I immediately fell in love with and decided I should make my own. Its subtle flavors of cinnamon and chile add just the right spice to make a bright morning. This is my favorite hot chocolate drink that starts off sweet and gradually builds a nice warm glow - like a sunrise.
Several years ago I gave all my friends hand decorated jars of this mix for the holidays. It is easy to customize each gift. I add more powdered hot cocoa mix to some of the jars to tone down the spice for each personal taste. Everyone loved it.
