Hot Chocolate Bitters
Kelli Armes, Herbalist

Who doesn’t love chocolate?  I mean am I right?  If you don’t like chocolate, just quit reading now and I will send a therapist over as soon as possible.  😀 This is the time of year that many of us that already have cold constitutions dread, the cold!  Yes I said it!  I can’t take the heat or in this case the cold!  So I got IN my kitchen to whip up some ‘hot chocolate’ bitters. 
I have shared with you another bitters recipe earlier, but I thought you all would like this one so I wanted to share this one too.  Simple to do!  😀
Here’s what you need. 
Raw or roasted cacao nibs (or hey both if you want)
1 cinnamon stick
a little cayenne pepper
a pint jar
Add your cacao to fill up the jar about 1/8-1/4 of the way full with cacao nibs
Add your cinnamon stick
And a small pinch of cayenne pepper.
Fill with the alcohol of your choice.  I used brandy and it does need to sit a little while but it worked great.
Label your jar. When you love the taste strain it and enjoy a few drops before meals or whenever you like.
