Super Rich, Chocolate Cocoa Recipe

I make a freakin' GREAT super rich, chocolate-y cocoa and when I had insomnia the other night I made myself a cup and posted the photo and recipe up on my Facebook.  So many people commented and tried it I decided I'd share here too!
It's kind of inspired by the way the Aztecs used to drink their cocoa, spiced up, however I like mine sweet so I added sugar which the Aztecs never used.
The whole key to this recipe is the DARK cocoa powder ... and the spices and booze. . .

Super Rich, Chocolate Cocoa
1 Tbsp. Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp. Scharffen Berger Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp. Sugar (or to taste)
Pinch of Sea Salt
Pinch of Cinnamon
Pinch of Chili Powder
2 Tbsp. Water
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Half & Half
Optional: 1/2 Oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
Warm water over medium heat with cocoa powders, spices and sugar until a thick syrup is formed. Add the milk and half & half and heat until just scalding, don't boil!
Pour into your favorite cup, add the optional booze, and top with marshmallows or whipped cream. Garnish with some shaved dark chocolate curls and a dash of cinnamon.
Yes, that IS my Cool Beans Coffee Art at top!  I just photoshopped out the coffee beans and repurposed my original colored pencil drawing. Which you can also get on Prints for $15 (shipping included!)
