3. yes
A cinnamon stick and a vanilla bean make good additions. Vanilla beans are so expensive though.

2. Hot chocolate and coffee syrup
I make a cold pressed coffee syrup from coffee and chicory. I mix a 1/2 cup of it with whole milk and two squares of dark semi-sweet chocolate, it's a great hot drink with an interesting flavor and not too sweet. The 1/2 and 1/2 option is good as well.

5. I never thought of using cayenne in hot chocolate
Cayenne would be good when I'm sick.

7. Really kicks it up a notch
Edited on Fri Feb-06-04 02:40 PM by Rabrrrrrr
Not in terms of being spicy or in an Emeril kind of way, but it seriously deepens the flavors of the chocolate and makes it feel "bigger"; plus the little bit of spiciness.

Quite amazing what a difference it makes.

I don't know it is with nestle et. al. instant hot chocolate yucko packet stuff, but if you're making your own with milk and chocolate that hasn't had the taste processed out of it (like hershey's or nestle's, etc.) and is made from the excellent beans (unlike hershey's or nestle's, etc.), the cayenne has something to work against.

6. Cayenne in hot chocolate
That's an excellent idea! I never thought of that, and I put a touch of cayenne in my baking. :thumbsup:

8. In the movie Chocolat
that's how Juliette Binoche makes hot chocolate. I haven't tried it yet though.

9. Aye, that's where I got the idea
that movie also compelled me to go read "The True History of Chocolate". Fascinating.

12. mmmm
that sounds really good. There are also a lot of high end chocolates that have chiles or cayenne in them. Almost bought one a while ago but chickened out.
