Heat heads who love the combination of chocolate with cayenne will enjoy this spiced hot chocolate. Keep in mind that the cayenne is on the lower side of spicy, so definitely increase the amount if you’re looking for a bit more of a kick. Use any kind of high-quality milk chocolate that you prefer. Garnish with a cut jalapeno pepper and you're set!



  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 1 tbsp Cocoa Powder, Natural Unsweetened
  • 2 Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Spices & Seasonings, Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon


1 Over low heat, warm the milk until small bubbles form but before the milk begins boiling. Be sure to not scald the milk or it won't have the best flavor.
2 Then add salt, spices, cocoa, chocolate, and stir in until melted and combined.
3 Remove from the heat and serve.
