Good hot chocolate - like Jacques Torres Wicked Hot Chocolate ($18) - uses actual chocolate rather than cocoa powder to create a flavorful, creamy beverage. Still, it's the "wicked" part that really sets this drink apart. What makes it wicked? Cinnamon and ground ancho and chipotle chili peppers. It adds a hot kick that lingers even after your chocolate has cooled down.
