Easy Mexican Hot Chocolate

Easy Mexican Hot Chocolate - ButterYum

I remember watching a chef prepare Mexican hot chocolate on a cooking show when I was a child and I just knew it was something I would love.  That memory stuck with me until I moved into my first apartment years later.  You can imagine my delight the first time I found the chocolate disks at the grocery store.  The rich chocolate-cinnamon flavor combination has been a favorite of mine ever since.  If you've never tried it, I urge you to give it a go.

Start by gently heating milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat. 

How to make Mexican Hot Chocolate WITH PHOTOS

Add one disk of mexican hot chocolate (I used this one).  

I like to chop it up a bit to speed the melting process along.

The disks contain roasted chocolate, sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts and other spices.  Mmmmm.

Add the Mexican chocolate to the milk and whisk it constantly until completely melted.

If you want to be super authentic, use this traditional Mexican tool to froth the liquid.

That was easy!  Now pour into mugs and enjoy.
