You know it's time for some hot hot chocolate.

(If you whip the cream by hand, the calories come out even. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.)

Mayan Hot Chocolate

2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon (or more to taste) sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
a pinch chile powder
a pinch cayenne pepper
1 cup whole milk

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan and add a couple of tablespoons hot water. Stir until smooth, place over medium-low heat, and whisk in the milk. Heat to steaming, pour into a mug and serve with loosely whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
