Spicy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Apotheker's Hot Chocolate


½ bar of Apotheker’s Spicy Triple Pepper Dark Chocolate
8-10 oz. water* or milk of your choice
Raw Honey or Maple Syrup (optional). If using honey, we recommend raw, untreated honey, if possible.
Optional: For a traditional Mexican style hot chocolate, add a pinch of cinnamon!

Break up Apotheker’s chocolate and melt in saucepan with water or milk. Add a scoop of honey or maple syrup (and cinnamon) if you wish. Stir until chocolate is melted and ENJOY!

We highly recommend topping your spicy hot chocolate with one of our Dark Chocolate Topped Mallows.

For a warm weather treat, serve over ice for a creamy iced chocolate drink.

*We have found that our chocolate makes a perfectly smooth hot chocolate with just water, no dairy needed! Give it a try.

Makes 1-2 servings. CAUTION: This is a spicy one!

Our spicy hot chocolate will certainly keep you cozy this winter. Not only is spice beneficial for warming the body, but it will also help reduce achiness as well! Capsaicin found in spicy peppers is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and muscle & joint pain-reducer.

Our chocolate is sourced from a small, family cooperative in the Dominican Republic and is organically and biodynamically grown. It is naturally high in magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper & potassium; healthy fats and fiber. We only use raw tupelo honey in our chocolate bars from a third generation beekeeper that does not use antibiotics or chemicals of any kind on her happy bees. Because we heat our chocolate to a low temperature, we ensure we do not lose many of the vital minerals, vitamins and enzymes found in raw honey. White Tupelo is found in the South and is a rich, mild tasting honey; it is also often considered safe for diabetics (though we recommend asking your doctor first). Other ingredients include organic ground vanilla bean powder, which is high in trace minerals, potassium and magnesium; and non-GMO sunflower lecithin, high in fatty acids that are wonderful for the brain and nervous system.
