Ever since I had a spicy mayan mocha at Chuao in San Diego, I became obsessed with all things spicy/chocolate.
So when I discovered this Spicy Hot Cocoa at Trader Joe’s I dropped it straight into my shopping cart, no questions. It is great as hot chocolate, but I have found two other uses.
1) Spicy Mocha – I use my Keurig brewer to make a single cup of dark coffee, then add a small scoop of the spicy mixture. Spicy chocolate coffee… what could be better?
2) Spicy Chocolate Brownies – use a standard recipe for brownies, but substitute the unsweetened cocoa powder for the spicy hot cocao mix. These brownies are delicious – just a hint of spice.
