    Cookgirl's Note:

    Thick and chocolate-y! It's traditional to use a special whisk called a molinollo to mix the ingredients.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 ounces mexican chocolate (this is called Ibarra chocolate, about 2 "discs")
    • 2 1/2 cups water
    • 2 1/2 cups milk
    • 7 ounces masa harina
    • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar (Mexican panocha sugar, also known as piloncillo is what I use for this recipe)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      NOTE: If Mexican chocolate is unavailable, you can substitute by mixing 4 ounces of dark bitter chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids) with 1/4 cup ground almonds, 1/4 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Process in food processor to fine powder.
    2. 2
      Grind the chocolate to a fine powder. I use a cheese grater to grate the chocolate first then whirl the chocolate in a clean coffee mill.
    3. 3
      Put the milk and water in a heavy saucepan, heat on medium, and gradually stir in the masa harina until a smooth paste is formed. Use a molinollo or a wire whisk for frothing the liquid.
    4. 4
      Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to an almost boil, stirring constantly untl the frothy drink thickens.
    5. 5
      Stir in the powdered chocolate, then add the sugar. Serve immediately. Garnish with a cinnamon stick if desired.

      I'm not going to give this a starred review because it was my first time trying it and I made some changes. I made a half recipe, using bittersweet chocolate, ground almonds and Splenda brown sugar blend. I weighed my masa harina to 3.5oz and it came out to just under a cup...I think this was a mistake because the end result ended up very thick like porridge and I had to double the liquids and could have tripled them. I also added regular Splenda and extra cinnamon. It ended up lightly sweet, tasting of masa harina and not much else. I couldn't barely taste the chocolate. Anyways, I'm glad I finally got to try it and look forward to trying it at a Mexican restaurant this winter. Freddy Cat says hi! Made for the Photo tag game.
