Who doesn’t fancy a cup of Cocoa during the chilly winter days?

Whenever I make this Homemade Hot Cocoa recipe I always think of one of my favorite movies, ‘Chocolat.’ A favorite part of mine is when Vianne is pouring her gorgeous homemade hot cocoa into an old fashioned french style cup and she tops it off with a pinch of Chili Pepper.
