I love cold and hot cocoas. I especially like the ones that are spicy. This certainly hits the spot. I hope that you will enjoy this lovely treat. Make ice cubes with your leftover coffee. It really adds extra flavour to your cold drinks.

Wonderful! Smooth and chocolaty with the exotic refreshing flavor of cardamon. I couldn't really taste the orange but that didn't bother me. I also added 3 Splenda packets.

So good! I used Splenda instead of the honey (so that I could pretend this was healthy), but otherwise prepared it as written. Oh, and I also doubled it, as I knew I would want some extra. I was pleasantly surprised by the strength of the orange flavor; I love chocolate and orange together. I highly recommend this recipe!

Now this is what I call a beverage. I'm drinking this as I type, it boy is it amazing! I have a bunch of cardamom pods that I just dont know what to do with since I never really had them before I thought I'd give this a try. I think I just found the use for the rest of them! This is a great treat for a nice summer day.
