Mexican Hot Chocolate

Jill Dalton
You deserve a comforting delicious hot drink on these cold fall evenings so why not ry this Plant Based Mexican Hot Chocolate. The heat from the cayenne pepper and cinnamon will warm you from the inside out and the richness of the chocolate will remind you of those days as a child coming in from the cold and your mom would make hot chocolate for you to warm yourself.
