If you're a long time reader you know I have his enormous love for mexican hot chocolate and could probably talk your ear off about the amazing taste and benefits. So when I was whipping up a batch of brownies for the boys before I left It occurred to me that if I added cayenne and cinnamon that it would turn into my lusted after warming drink. Turns out that idea, genius. It was like biting into chocolate, tasting cinnamon and then getting a tiny little kick of heat at the end, I can't even, people. You have to try to believe, and afraid of spicy, just use the cinnamon.
