i received this gorgeous little lunch box of mariebelle hot chocolate for my birthday a couple of months ago. mariebelle is a lovely chocolate shop in soho in new york city, and one of their specialties is this, their aztecan style hot chocolate. it is made with pure belgian cocoa, refined sugar, corn starch (as is tradition with aztecan style), and a variety of spices. it is a dark, rich cocoa drink, thick and full-bodied, earthy, not sweet at all. my particular favourite is the aztec spicy, which contains cayenne pepper for an interesting kick, which can be further enhanced (as suggested by mariebelle herself) with a shot of tequila. some nightcap.
