Hey guys, I'm making some hot cocoa mixes as Christmas gifts for some family members, along with some homemade peppermint marshmallows. I'm seeing several recipes that call for a tiny amount of cayenne pepper - I love the idea, as I think a little heat can really add to the depth of the drink's flavor. But I'm also not so sure how it would mix with peppermint marshmallows. Any thoughts? It's easy to leave out, and the recipe also calls for cinnamon and nutmeg, so there will be other flavors in there.
