I tried Mexican hot chocolate about a year ago and I loved it! What makes this hot chocolate recipe special is the hints of vanilla from the vanilla bean, cinnamon and also the spicy cayenne pepper. This hot chocolate does double duty and warms you up two ways! (If you don’t like spice, you can leave out the cayenne pepper.)
I used a prepared chocolate milk from Rolling Meadow Dairy because it makes it a little simpler to prepare and also their chocolate milk tastes really chocolaty. It’s also made with grass fed milk which we prefer in our house.
I whip up a pot of this Mexican hot chocolate when my kids get home from school on a very cold day or after a fun winter activity.
I hope this recipe warms you and your family this winter season!
