Alton Brown Hot Chocolate

Perhaps the best homemade hot chocolate recipe in the world.


2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup cocoa
2 1/2 cups powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or more to taste
Hot water, or as we like it, milk

We can go months without using cayenne pepper and here we have used twice this week.   

Put everything in the mixer, of course except the water or milk, and mix it up good.

Fill you mug half full of the mixture and add water.  If you use milk it tastes good with filling your mug 1/3 of the way with the mixture.  And whipped cream, top it with whipped cream.

When the whipped cream melts into the hot chocolate it tastes like French silk pie, yummy.

Supposedly this will last indefinitely, but really what will happen is you will wonder where it went so fast.

Oh, I love any recipe by Alton Brown! It is supposed to be winter where we live, but the temps are mild.... if we ever get a nice, cold day I will give this a try. Thanks!
