Mexican Hot Chocolate - 4 Ww Points

"Fabulous hot chocolate ready almost instantly. Mexican hot chocolate is more bitter and even has peppers added sometimes. If you want it more bitter, use the bittersweet chocolate and even add less sugar. You can also mix a batch of the dry ingredients, divide by 4 and store into ziploc bags. Add each portion to 1 cup of fat free milk and heat it up. Enjoy!"

    Really delicious and quick and easy to make! So much better than a mix and just as easy, I 'll make this again this winter. Made for ZWT 8

    By mistake I made the full recipe for just 2 people. Glad I did, but I had to hide the left-overs so they wouldn't disappear into our tummies immediately. Now we have something to look forward to tomorrow night. As everyone has stated the brown sugar makes the difference. It has a richness that makes it dessert-like. Made for ZWT8

    This was a lovely mug of Mexican hot chocolate Nif. I very much enjoyed this, it doesn't taste light in any way. I'll be making this quick and easy recipe often. I did add some extra bittersweet chocolate and less sugar. Thanks for sharing.

    This turned out thick and delicious. It was a good idea to use brown sugar for this recipe and in this way it taste really like mexican hot chocolate.<br/>I dotted some foamed milk to make this more attractive.<br/>Thanks a lot for posting this recipe.

    Great hot chocolate! Loved the cinnamon and the sweetening from the brown sugar. Rich and comforting - thanks for sharing the recipe!


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
