Spicy Dulce de Leche Hot Chocolate

Spicy Dulce de Leche Hot Chocolate

What could be better than a hot cup of chocolate heaven this holiday season? This isn't your average cup o' Swiss Miss. This is rich, velvety, chocolatey goodness wrapped up with a spicy little bow. A subtle kick of Kashmiri chili paired with the warm and decadent flavors of cinnamon, mace, and vanilla will warm you to your core---and let's not forget the absolute magic that is Green Chartreuse. This world famous liqueur originates from France, and its top secret recipe containing over 130 herbs and spices is known only by two Chartreuse monks. It packs a powerful punch---sweet, spicy, and herbaceous. We think it's absolutely delicious in this hot chocolate, and Santa would surely agree.
