Mexican Hot ChocolatePosted: December 30, 2014
What do you do when you have a whole bunch of unsweetened dark chocolate left over from a recipe? Why not try your hand at making a traditional Mexican hot chocolate that will blow your mind in the flavour department? Yep! This recipe is a keeper!
Mexican Hot Chocolate
You will need:
4 squares of unsweetened dark chocolate
3 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar (or to taste)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
A dash of cayenne pepper or hot chili powder
(optional) Whip cream, to top.
Pour milk into a pot and heat on medium-low until steaming. Roughly chop the chocolate and melt into the milk, whisking every so often. Add spices and sweeten to taste. Pour into a large mug and top with whip cream, if using. Enjoy (a lot!) on a cold winter’s night.
