Aztec Hot Chocolate Mix

"This recipe comes from Gifts from the Southwest Kitchen. The spiced chocolate mix is reminiscent of the popular Mexican varieties. This makes 10 servings or can be divided into individual servings (1/4 cup each) and given as a gift with a nice mug. Update: Annacia just Zamiled me that she has now mixed this with hot coffee with excellent results for a nice mocha."

    Love the flavors in this. The allspice is a nice touch. I made with water, but will try it with coffee soon. Great idea for gift giving. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.

    This was delicious, I mixed it with coffee and had a wonderfully warming drink to soothe me after a long day - just loved the flavors blended with the coffee, so rich. I used Splenda instead of the sugar, and it did not detract from the flavor at all. Thanks Paula G for the sweet treat! Made for Comfort Cafe, Jan 2009.

    Great hot choc mix! DH took a jar into the office to use in their less than exceptional coffee. He reports that it really perks things up. I will use this all winter. Thanks Paula!

    MMMMMM Chocolate! This is really good and has just become my new hot cocoa recipe. I read Annacia's review regarding the "globs" forming in the bottom of the cup, so I used a little splash of the boiling water and stirred it in to make a paste before adding the rest ... no lumps! I also tried it as a mocha mix ... delicious!

    I enjoyed the taste with the spice and chocolate and it's sure easy to put together. I used the Vita Mix to blend the powders and that worked very well, the mix came out very fine and smooth with Splenda for the sugar. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that even though it was very well blended it still made a lot of small globs in the bottom of the cup when the water was added. They wouldn't "melt" no matter how much I stirred.*UPDATE*: I have discovered that this mix makes a delightful mocha and with the coffee as a mixer there are no wee globs at all!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
