When a regular cup of steaming hot cocoa doesn't quite warm you up after being out in the freezing cold, then try sipping this cool new yet quite hot Spicy Aztec Hot Chocolate from Lake Champlain Chocolates in Vermont. The word "chocolate" actually derives from the Aztec word Xocolatl, which translates to "bitter water". The Aztecs considered this drink made from cacao beans, water, spices, and chilis to be a sacred gift from the god Quetzalcoatl and was mainly enjoyed by Aztec leaders, soldiers going into battle, as an aphrodisiac, and those selected to be sacrificed... to help lift their spirits. Well, now you too can make and enjoy a modern, less bitter version of this revered drink from ancient Mexico that combines cocoa, cinnamon, ancho chilis, chipotle peppers, and sugar for a perfectly smoky, sweet, and extra spicy mug of rich, full-bodied hot chocolate. Just add hot milk instead of water. If you want it to be more authentic to Aztec tradition, serve it up chilled or you can also add a scoop to your morning coffee to kick it up a notch as well. 🍫🌶️🥵
