Spicy Hot ChocolateMADE BY COCOA SANTE IN CONCORD, MASSACHUSETTS
Mexico has been remixing our idea of "hot" chocolate for a very, very long time, and this Aztec chocolatl-inspired hot cocoa simply pulses with spice and heat. Rich organic cocoa powder gets a heady infusion of earthy cinnamon and throat-warming chipotle pepper, balanced out with nonfat milk powder, a touch of vanilla and organic cane sugar.
It couldn't be easier — all you have to do is whisk a pouch into one cup of hot water — yet it tastes like a fancy cup you'd be served at a specialty chocolate shop.
We dig the colorful patterned packaging on all Cocoa Santé flavors, especially this one (orange, of course). The bright box in our pantry is a double winter pick me up.
