Mexican Hot Chocolate
November 30, 2016
Drinking Mexican Hot Chocolate is not just an indulgent custom in Mexico, but a way of life. Many natives drink it with water, but the creaminess created by adding milk makes it a favorite for all, young and old alike. The health benefits of Cacao are numerous and the flavors of the pure ground and roasted cocoa beans are enhanced by fresh cinnamon and coarse sugar.
1In a 2 quart saucepan, heat the milk just until it begins to boil. Remove from the heat.
2Chop the chocolate into small pieces while the milk is heating. Add the chocolate into the hot milk and stir with a molinillo (chocolate frothing tool) or a wire whisk.
3Whisk the mixture vigorously to melt the chocolate and create a layer of froth on top. When the chocolate is fully dissolved, pour into 4 mugs and enjoy.
