Why You'll Love This Recipe

This Sweet Orange Chili Hot Chocolate has incredible depth of flavor, yet it only has 4 ingredients! Traditional ingredients of milk, sugar, and cocoa are combined with Montana Mex Sweet Seasoning to create a sweet orange hot cocoa with just a little bit of spice!

I created this recipe with my friends at Organic Prairie and Montana Mex. This Sweet Seasoning from Montana Mex is equally delicious on meat as it is in baked goods and hot chocolate! This Sweet Orange Chili Hot Chocolate pairs so well with my Easy Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Tips

  • You can use any kind of milk you prefer. I have tested this both with whole milk and coconut milk and they are both insanely delicious! If you are vegan, easily use coconut milk – the coconut milk flavor actually pairs incredibly well with the spices in the seasoning mix.
  • If you want to add whipped cream, make my Homemade Whipped Cream for topping!
  • If you want to make more than one you can double or triple this recipe.

FAQ's

Can I use another kind of milk?

Yes, you can also make this recipe using a dairy free milk if you like! I love making this with coconut milk, but you can also use almond milk or oat milk. Whatever milk you like, you can use!

Can I make more than one?

Yes, you can use the recipe card calculator to double or triple this recipe to make more than one!

What if I don't have the Montana Mex spice mix?

This spice mix has a lot going on, which is why it's so tasty! It's filled with orange peel, allspice, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, chili and more. It would be difficult to create this same flavor profile in such a small amount! So, I highly recommend picking up a jar of this spice mix to enjoy this recipe fully!
