Recipe by Phil!
The key to this recipe is the cayenne, an ingredient hearkening back to the way the Mexican Indians used to make it. Recipe from Alton Brown's Good Eats.

I drink this almost daily in the winter. I make a big batch of it and leave it in the cupboard. The trick to this is to pour enough BOILING water to make a paste and stir until it's smooth. Then pour more boiling water to fill the cup and stir some more. It makes the richest creamiest hot chocolate ever!
- 2 cups powdered sugar
