Three Spicy Hot Chocolate Recipes

spiced hot chocolate by martha stewart

I enjoy the taste of a hot chocolate after a day of ski or to drink instead of dessert on a cold winter night. I always melt chocolate pieces and use warm milk to prepare mine. Adding spices enhances the flavor. I found you three recipes online that you can make to your guests during the Holiday season.

Martha Stewart proposed a Mexican Hot Chocolate and a Spiced Hot Dark Chocolate on her sites. If spices are not your thing, give a try to an Earl Grey Hot Chocolate.

Radishes and Rhubarb shared a hot chocolate spiced with cayenne, nutmeg and cinnamon. Her recipe uses a mix of dark chocolate pieces and premium cacao powder.

Pay attention to how you will serve your hot chocolate. I like the idea of a cookie hanging on your cup. You could do it with special cookie cutter or for a breath-taking version, bake your own gingerbread house cookie.
