BackstoryThere is a signifant difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate. Mexican Hot Chocolate is full of flavor, without being a traditionally (by american standards) sweet treat. I modified a basic brownie recipe by "cross breeding" it with a traditional Mayan hot chocolate recipe.

- 2 squares bittersweet chocolate
- 1 c. sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten well

- 1/2 t. chili powder

- 3/4 c. flour
- 1/2 c. chopped almonds or hazlenuts (these are ground in the beverage for added "body")
