I would give 3.5 stars. The taste is very interesting, but I can`t say I liked this so much. The chocolate was very hot and after a few sips the taste became boring. I could hardly drink more than 1/3 cup at once. Then I added more water to reduce the hot taste and the chocolate became just right for me. And I added a little sugar to taste. Probable will make again, but with modifications. But thanks for posting, I like trying new things.

Tasty and fast! As everyone else said, the taste is very different than normal hot chocolate. Replaced the green chili pepper with 2 tsp chili powder (it was really spicy so less would probably be appropriate. And I poured boiling water directly in a mug with all the dry ingredients and with a bit of stirring it turned out perfectly.

Good starting point but this had no appeal. Maybe I wasn't using the right peppers as nothing in my market was labelled "green chili" so I went with jalapeños. Anyway after giving up, I arrived at boiling water with vanilla and a few shakes of each salt and ground cayenne per serving. Much better job of covering up the bitterness of the cocoa, and without the mess of steeping peppers.

This is a wonderful drink. Hot or cold it really fits the bill. I make a batch in the mornings and drink small cups throughout the day. You can also add cream and sweetener for a more conventional taste. I rarely do this, but some members of my family do and they really like it that way.

This is hard to rate because I think of sweetened hot chocolate, which this is NOT! It is a drink that one's tastes must adjust to. I tried this as a hot drink and as a cold drink; I prefer it cold. It will take a while for my tastes to adjust to this drink!
