I dare you to try this Mexican Hot Chocolate- It’s that good AND so easy to make!!
I always try to make different coffees, teas, hot chocolates, I even made the famous Turkish coffee and S’mores hot chocolate which was delicious by the way, but I think none of them beats this one. So far, this Mexican Hot chocolate is our favorite. It aromatic and most definitely relaxing.
What more do you need during this stormy winter apart from a hot chocolate, some chocolates, a good movie and a snuggle buddy?!
Try out this recipe and let me know what you think. Tag me on to your picture if you do end up making it 🙂
PS: I added something special to make the drink even yummier, but you’ll have to scroll all the way to bottom to know what just so I can have you read up the recipe ; )
3 cups milk (any kind)
3 Tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 tsp. chili powder, optional
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon stick. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring gently.
Remove from heat. If desired, add chili powder to increase spice.
Pour into 3 cups to serve immediately, or set over low heat, stirring occasionally.
I put some whipped cream on the hot chocolate and sieved some unsweetened cocoa powder on top – The recipe doesn’t call for these two additions, but I thought why not?! and boy! it was a classic finish to the drink.
