First time trying Mexican hot chocolate and what a great treat. For the milk I used 2% and for the topping I used Cool Whip Free.
I made it for one using Roosie's measurements. Very good and warming. Not too sweet. Thanks. Maybe next time I will be daring and add a dash of cayenne pepper.
I love Mexican chocolate, I like to add a dash of cayenne pepper to mine ;)
Yummy! This was excellent. As suggested, we topped with whipped cream and served it with biscochitos (Biscochitos). The only (unintentional) change I made was I only added 5 cups of milk, because the saucepan I was using was too small. So it was maybe a little richer, but everyone liked it that way. Wonderful recipe, I will surely make this again, thank you Sue!
This hot chocolate was a big hit at my house! Because I was making it for children, I used half the spices, but it still turned out wonderful. We served it with whipped cream. My teenage daughter said it was one of her all-time favorite cups of hot chocolate. Thanks for an easy and popular hot chocolate recipe!
A lovely warming drink. A nice blend of spices with out being to overpowering.At first I thought the sugar would be too much but it was just perfect. I also scaled it down to make just 1 serving, it scales down well.
I made a sixth of this recipe to make just one serving. Here are the measurements I used: 4 tsp sugar, 2 tsp cocoa, 1/4 cup cold water, 1/6 tsp cinnamon, dash nutmeg, 1 cup milk and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. It was supposed to rain all day today. A drop hasn't come down from the sky, but it might as well be pouring! It is damp, dark and bone-chillingly windy out. This is the perfect pick-me-up/warm-me-up! The subtle cinnamon flavor glows through just enough to not be overpowering. Next time I might try a smidge less sugar just for personal taste, but its really perfect as-is. Wonderful flavor combination and it just satisfies you right down to your very soul! I did not have whipped cream for this (though I wish I did), but it was delicious. I will make this again- very easy to throw together and like Missy said, it does scale down just fine. Thanks Sue L, for this soul-warmer!
Excellent hot chocolate drink perfect for those endless rainy days. Scales down well.
