Chinese 5 Spice Cocoa

  • Difficulty Easy
  • Time 15 minutes

Hopefully you already have our Chinese 5 Spice blend in your kitchen, but if you don’t – jump on this.

With fennel, cinnamon, star anise, clove, ginger, and more, Chinese 5 Spice is a wonderfully complex and versatile blend that kicks up this dark chocolate cocoa recipe. Top with whipped cream and candy cane pieces and you have a spicy-sweet holiday treat to keep you cozy.

Note: Any type of milk can be used (low-fat, whole, almond, coconut, oat, soy, etc.) and you can add more or less seasoning to suite your taste. You can also use a pre-made cocoa mix with any of our cocoa flavor hacks.
