- 1 cup of coconut milk (so delicious brand) * you can use real milk also
- dash of cinnamon
- dash of fresh ground nutmeg
- dash of chili powder
- drop of vanilla
- 2 heaping tablespoons of sweet baking chocolate (best quality you can find) … or more depending on what you like.
For Mayan Hot Chocolate (called cah cah wah toh, meaning “bitter water”)
For Aztec Hot Chocolate (called xcah lah toh, meaning “hot water” as in spicy)
Same as above and add:
For Italian Hot Chocolate, the first European, (called chocolatte)
Use hot milk instead of hot water
add lots of sugar instead of honey
only use cinnamon and vanilla
RP Servings: 1-2 (it’s very rich!)
RATING: 4 stars
My husband gave this 3 1/2, but he’s not a big chocolate person. AND he kept coming over to me and taking more sips, so I think it grew on him! This is the real thing (esp if you use water instead of milk), so you can impress all your guests (or children!) with your little history and language lesson!
