Inspired by the movie, "Chocolat"! Cocoa was used by the Aztec and Mayan as a sacred drink. It was brewed with various spices and drank unsweetened as part of ceremonies. This recipe uses pure cocoa and several spices, including chili peppers. The flavor is very rich and aromatic, like a dark perfume. Experiment with the sweetness to your liking.
