Spicy Mocha Latte recipe - a seasonal beverage

Spicy Mocha Latte recipe - a seasonal beverage

We plan on enjoying the holidays and taking a break from our regular routine over the next few weeks, and one of our favourite ways to indulge is with a little extra something sweet.

We’ve partnered with our friends and neighbours at Thom Bargen in Winnipeg, Canada to bring you this seasonal, spicy mocha recipe to help you warm up – with just a hint of ancho chillis!

While a spicy hot beverage may sound a little scary, we promise this recipe provides the perfect balance of deep, rich chocolate with the added bonus of a little bit of a kick.

We hope you enjoy it and we definitely recommend making enough to share with friends.
