Mexican Hot Chocolate: Grab a Molinillo & Make This Creamy Hot Chocolate Recipe

In Mexico, hot chocolate is serious business. The spicy chocolate is served in a hand-made clay hot chocolate server and whipped by hand until frothy with a wooden molinillo. Because UncommonGoods is always sold out of the only Mexican hot chocolate server I've been able to find online, we enjoy this amazing hot chocolate recipe from a plain ol' soup pot. Our taste buds don't know the difference, but I still keep my eye on the unattainable sold-out one. Better yet, maybe a trip to Mexico is the answer! 

You'll need:

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the milk into a pot over low heat. Add the chocolate, sugar and cinnamon. Cook, stirring, about 20 minutes, or until chocolate melts completely.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and almond extract. 
  3. With an electric mixer or molinillo, beat the hot chocolate (carefully!) until frothy. Serve with whipped cream or marshmallows, if desired. Makes about 4 mugs.
