This was in the latest issue of Women's Weekly & thought it would be good to add to the Mexican leg of ZWT III. Great to warm you up on a cold winters days!

Marvelous, I made a single cup using dark cocoa and skim milk. The cinnamon is, of course, delicious and comforting.

Nice comforting warm drink to have on a cold night here in Florida. I have never had a Mexican hot chocolate and this was very good. I didn't have the splenda granular but the packets, I made 1/2 the recipe which required me to use 2 1/2 packets. Thanks for sharing Mandy!! Made for Holiday tag.
