Mexican Hot Chocolate: Grab a Molinillo & Make This Creamy Hot Chocolate Recipe by Donna John
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!
- 4 cups milk
- 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped fine
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 drops almond extract
- whipped cream or marshmallows, for serving
Here's how to make it:
- 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.
- Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and almond extract.
- 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.
