Recipe by Chef Krissy Scommegna, Table 128

Sweet and decadent home made hot cocoa with the warmth of cinnamon and just the right kick. No pre-made mix can compete with this. Krissy's genius recipe makes your own home made mix that can be enjoyed all winter long ...or until you have to make another batch. Warning, it's irresistible! 

2/3 cup cocoa powder

1 1/3 cup sugar

1/2 Tbsp cinnamon 

1/2 Tbsp Piment d'Ville

1 vanilla bean, split

1/2 tsp fine black pepper

1/2 tsp chili de arbol

1 cup milk

Mix ingredients and store in an airtight container.

To make one cup of hot cocoa, whisk together 1 heaping tablespoon of cocoa mix and about 2 tablespoons of milk in a small saucepan over low heat until the cocoa mix is dissolved. Over medium heat add the rest of the milk, stirring occasionally until hot.
