I knew this recipe was going to have cayenne in it when I seen the title. I love Mexican hot chocolate because of the spice. Do your kids like it? Mine like spicy foods and drinks. I am not sure how they will feel about a spicy donut. To be honest, I am not sure how I feel about it, but I love the drink, so I am ready to try it out.

There's a dark chocolate that our local Aldi's carries that has a bit of chili flavor to it. My wife loves it, which surprises me since she's normally averse to spicy foods. But the chocolate has a very subtle kick to it, and this recipe sounds quite similar. Many thanks to Maggie G for the advice about using buttermilk and the possible pitfall if cocoa powder is used. I'm looking forward to giving this a try.

I have a decent amount of experience making donuts and I definitely agree with how this recipe calls for buttermilk as your first option over regular milk. Regular milk works well but the buttermilk gives a nice airy texture to the donuts. I'm surprised at the small amount of cayenne pepper but I guess the flavor is strong enough to shine through! Keep in mind that if you use cocoa powder instead of hot chocolate powder, you should only use 1/2 cup total because it might make the donuts dry!
