Explosive Hot Chocolate Recipe

The cayenne pepper in this hot chocolate adds an explosive kick to a plain cocoa drink!

Warm Cocoa

Done here in the Dirty South, we like to put cayenne in EVERYTHING, even our hot chocolate – which, if you think about it, is a little strange.  You know, it is hot enough down here without trying to raise our internal body heat… but we like thing that way. LOL!

Explosive Hot Chocolate
The cayenne papper in this hot chocolate gives it a little explosive kick!
Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: Southern
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 2½ cups powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (or more for added punch)
  • Hot water
  1. In a medium size bowl, combine the dry ingredients until evenly distributed. Wet a fingertip and dip it into the mix to taste-test the spicyness. If you want more punch, add a bit more cayenne.
  2. Using a coffee maker or pot on the stove, heat 4 to 6 cups of water.
  3. Take your coffee mug and fill it half-full with the dry mix. Top with hot water and stir well.
  4. Depending on the mug size, makes 2-4 cups.
