    I was off at another website
    (yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, treason, etc,) looking at a recipe for Mexican Hot Chocolate (Martha Stewart's in fact) that called for serving it with whipped cream if you like.
    ( http://bit.ly/11GHro2 )
    Got a slamming review of three stars, and the reviewer says:
    "It looks delicious! However, we Mexicans don't drink chocolate with whipped cream."

    And I couldn't help but think-
    Is that a law? icon_rolleyes.gif
    Did you personally interview every single Mexican to be sure? icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif
    What is the punishment in Mexico for dalloping a little spritz of Reddi-Whip right into the cup? (the death penalty?)

    Some people kill me. And I didn't even get the chance to add whipped cream before they did it.



    Done venting. Carry on. icon_wink.gif

    No one would prevent you from having whipped cream on it, but it is correct that hot chocolate is not normally served with whipped cream in Mexico. It's quite frothy because of the way it's made, and whipped cream would crush the froth. If it didn't have "Mexican" in the title it might not have been an issue for that reviewer.

    But "not normally served" is not an absolute. "We Mexicans don't" is.
    I am quite sure there is a Mexican somewhere who likes whipped cream on their hot chocolate.
    It's the molinillo that makes it frothy, not the addition or omission of whipped cream. j/s

    OK fine. I do happen to know a Mexican who likes whipped cream on her chocolate. It's my cousin's wife Mirabell. She likes it in her coffee too. I think she's weird. rotfl.gif

    From a can? You are in good company.
    My daughter likes that and also shooting squeeze cheese from a can straight into her mouth.
    I used to threaten that she would choke on it, but- she lives.
    I just learned to mark which cans are hers. rotfl.gif

    Have you not had whipped cream in your coffee...after adulterating it with alcohol? She may be weird, but I bet she's a very happy woman. icon_lol.gif

    Drink the coffee with the Bailey's and figure out something else to do with the whipped cream.
    I have suggestions but I can't mention them here. rotfl.gif
