    This recipe is from the Nestle Very Best Baking. Champurrado is a tradition in my part of the world on Christmas morning with tamales and sweet bread.

      ground up 1/4 to 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a coffee grinder, nuke up the oat powder with a cup of water in microwave, mix it with cocoa and sugar OR sweet chai tea powder, stir in extra 6 oz water, nuke one minute, tada! It works for me too

      Wordeful chocolate! Different than the ones they serve here. But I was lucky to found a Mexican food store next to my office and so I found masa harina and piloncillo cones!!! I used theM for the first time and the result was so good. Now I must found some other recipes that use them, but even if I don't this chocolate is so tasty that it going to be an usual morning beverage. Thanks PaulaG for another keeper. Made it for ZWT3.
