I think I got this from the Urban Peasant website. It is soooo good to make on a snowy night while curled up with another warm body and a movie.

What a perfect blend of flavors! I used a Thai Bird chili and left it and the cinnamon stick in until the end. This cocoa is like a carnival in your mouth. First, the rich, rose and saffron-hinted chocolate, followed by a spicy cinnamon-chili and it's all tempered by the fresh orange zest. So delicious! I wouldn't change a thing. Made exactly as directed. Thanks for posting another unique beverage recipe, horseplay! Made & enjoyed for the Spain & Portugal Forum's Saffron tag game.
