Hot chocolate is my favorite drink to enjoy in winter. The spices added to the chocolate drink makes it more tastier and spicy. This makes a perfect drink during rains in winter. I made it for my brother adding pepper seeds for his cold. The mint leaves added gives the taste and flavor of mint combined with chocolate.
