Some like it hot, and when it comes to hot chocolate, the hotter the better, as far as I’m concerned. That’s why this Mayan Full Spice Hot Chocolate, inspired by the drinking chocolate of the Mayans, with organic spices, flowers, herbs and, of course, chilies, is so hard to resist. And isn’t something irresistible exactly what you want on Valentine’s Day? Made by Kakawa House, a new chocolate cafe and must stop on the Santa Fe Trail in New Mexico. kakawachocolates.com
