1 tsp black pepper, finely ground
1 tsp urfa pepper (flakes)
1 tsp red chili flakes
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp star anise, finely ground
2 tsp cardamom, finely ground
3 tsp cloves, finely ground
3 tsp ginger, dried and finely ground
6 tsp cinnamon, finely ground
2 vanilla beans, scraped
Mix together, keep in a sealed jar away from any moisture and enjoy together with any hot chocolate.
I like mine best with 3 tsp raw, unsweetened cocoa, honey, a good pinch of this spice blend (1/2 tsp) and normal or almond milk.
The spice blend also works miracles in desserts 😉
