Just remember not to relax too much, it’s go time! Family is on their way and you need a hot cup of spicy holiday coffee to keep buzzing through the holiday season. One thing that always seems to sneak up on me, especially around the holidays… You know, with all the food and sweet treats, is frequent heartburn. Blah!

There’s nothing worse than heartburn sneaking up on you while you’re running around trying to put up last minute decorations, finish your shopping or just trying to enjoy a nice cup of chocolate holiday coffee. I know you know exactly what I mean!

Spicy Chocolate Holiday Coffee

So, while I was grabbing some decorations, stocking stuffers and holiday cards at Walgreens, I snagged a box of Nexium® 24HR Capsules 42ct. I know that until the New Year break, it’ll be go-go-go. Non-stop holiday celebrations, food and fun – and I don’t want heartburn giving me a cheap shot when I least expect it!

Well, Nexium® 24HR Capsules is a medication that provide protection from frequent heartburn so I can savor the best of the holidays, like freshly brewed spicy chocolate coffee and a cookie or two! Just one pill a day provides all-day, all-night protection from frequent heartburn – no matter what triggers it.*

Easy chocolate coffee with a spicy kick

Spicy Holiday Coffee Recipe


  • 1½ tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon + dusting cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • Freshly brewed hot coffee
  • Whipped topping
  • Optional: Creamer (try adding mocha!)


While your coffee is brewing, you can get your ingredients out and ready. You’ll want to add each ingredient to each mug before pouring the hot coffee in.

Pour hot coffee into the mugs and stir until everything is dissolved. At this point you can add in any creamer you want. A buddy of mine has a slight obsession with mocha creamer…

I sent him this recipe; he sent me a text an hour later to tell me I needed to try it with mocha creamer. Of course he did, he’d have mocha creamer on toast if he could. Nevertheless, I did try it and he was right! A little mocha creamer enhances the flavor of this coffee even more. It’s certainly not necessary but go ahead – try it both ways!
