The Azteca Aphrodisiac Sipping Chocolate.

The best hot chocolate in Atlanta comes from Cacao, a small chocolate shop that boasts one of the best do-it-yourself cocoa mixes. Their drinks are named "sipping chocolates" for their rich texture that is reminiscent of European-style drinking chocolates, and Cacao has cultivated a beverage that is both simplistic and luxurious. Their popular Azteca Aphrodisiac Sipping Chocolate is a delectably rich dark chocolate mix with six different chiles and spices to transform the drinking experience. Make it at home with your own mix, or stop by their shop in Atlanta to try it firsthand.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
