This is a variation on a hot chocolate recipe that I found on the net. It originally used 2 eggs, but I left them out.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 4 ounces mexican chocolate (3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla, preferably Mexican
  • cinnamon stick (to garnish)


  1. In a medium sized saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until scalding, but not boiling.
  2. Break the chocolate into pieces. Add to the hot milk along with the cinnamon, sugar and salt. Stir until melted. Beat with a wire whisk until frothy.
  3. Add the vanilla. Continue to whisk.
  4. Pour into 4 mugs. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

This was amazing I loved it! The only thing I added was cayenne to give it a little kick and it worked well with soy milk too!

Loved this! Served it at a holiday party and it was a hit. Just a bit too sweet for me, so I might reduce the sugar by 1/2-1 T next time. Great with a little splash of peppermint schnapps, too!
