My hot chocolate of choice! Aside from cinnamon, I also add a pinch of chili powder to give it an extra kick ;)

About this topic


In Mexico, hot chocolate remains a popular national drink. Besides the instant powder form, traditional Mexican hot chocolate includes semi-sweet chocolate, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. Hot chocolate of this type is commonly sold in circular or hexagonal tablets which can be dissolved into hot milk, water or cream, then blended until the mixture develops a creamy froth. Mexican cinnamon hot chocolate is traditionally served alongside a variety of Mexican pastries known as pan dulce and, as in Spain, churros.  Mexican hot chocolate differs from "regular" hot chocolate in that it is not as sweet, has a hint of cinnamon and does not have marshmallows. Individual recipes vary.
