Mexican Hot Chocolate

A generous tablespoon of cinnamon gives this rich hot chocolate its pleasant warmth, while a pinch of cayenne adds a surprising—but welcome—touch of heat. If you don’t have Raaka bars, feel free to use your favorite dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao—and bonus if it also contains any of the spices in the recipe!). Serve this up at a holiday brunch, or a simply enjoy it on a cold afternoon.
