Vanilla Bean-Infused Cacao Nib Hot Chocolate

Here is a recipe for the most fully realized hot chocolate imaginable. Cacao nibs render the buttery richness and pungent bitterness associated with hot drinking chocolate, while both Dutch and black cocoa powders deliver the familiar rounded mellowness of traditional hot cocoa to create an especially full-flavored yet balanced hot chocolate that is the best of all versions.
