that does sound good! I've really taken to buying those gourmet chocolate bars with chili peppers in them. I didn't think they would be good but I was delighted to discover I was wrong. I particularly like the Firecracker one - it pops when you eat it!

I grew up on Mexican hot chocolate! We used Abuelita chocolate and just ground it all up. Yum!
