Hot Chocolate With Spices In It Is A Thing?

Growing up, I never had hot chocolate that was any flavor other than hot chocolate. Nothing fancy, just chocolate that happened to be hot and delicious.

This changed once I became open to trying new recipes. Furthermore, this was an amazing decision because I came across a substantial amount of hot chocolate recipe that utilizes different flavors.

On the contrary, as a foodie, I am embarrassed to admit that I did not become really open about trying different foods until I became an adult.

Do not get me wrong, I always loved food. However, now my taste for has expanded exponentially. Now, I find myself using all types of spices when I cook.

Furthermore, I am always on the hunt to find the best spices.

On this journey of making different types of chocolate beverages, I came across multiple Mexican hot chocolate recipes that use a lot of spices for the beverage.

Seeing these recipes were an indicator to me that in Mexican culture, it is normal to add all types of spices to your chocolate beverage.

This revelation inspired me to make a Mexican hot chocolate spiced recipe. After that, I went on to create this spiced hot chocolate recipe.

The Difference Between The Mexican And Spiced Hot Chocolate Recipe

If I were to look at the two recipes, the difference would be within the ingredients.

Although they have similar ingredients, Mexican hot chocolate uses red crushed pepper flakes and instant coffee, while hot chocolate with spices uses allspice berries, bay leaves, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.

As far as the process of making both hot chocolates go, the method is the same.
