    Missy Wombat's Note:

    Remember the movie Chocolat where Juliette Binoche adds chili to the drink? Well, this is one recipe for a spiced hot chocolate.

      when made right this is VERY GOOD! the pepper adds a unique spice and gives the recipe its flavor. it is a thick chocolate drink that can only be drunk in small portions but it is very satisfying. I did have a little bit of trouble getting it to come out right, but it was worth it!

      Hi- I have not tried this yet, but can hardly wait to do so! Have yet to find a source for vanilla bean as well as does the hot pepper need to be fresh, or dried?
