Mexican Hot Chocolate
Have you ever had Mexican Hot Chocolate? It’s rich and delicious! When there’s a chill in the air I make us some of the heavenly treat.
First you need a mug that can hold a lot!😊
A wooden Molinillo is also needed. It’s a wooden whisk.
Don’t forget the Mexican Chocolate.
I purchased mine at our local grocery store. It can also be found online.
Take one chocolate tablet…
and place it in a sandwich bag and break it up into pieces. I use my rolling pin.
Heat 4 cups of milk in a pot. When it’s warm add ALL the broken up chocolate.
Pour this rich deliciousness into a mug and enjoy! Add some cookies and you have the perfect treat!
I like to pour the rest in my handmade pitcher that keeps it hot until I want more.

Oh now I want to be home with my book and a hot chocolate ( and I don’t even like chocolate🤣)
This has a lovely flavor.
Happy Tuesday to you!
I might have to try this. I am not a big chocoholic, just once in a while…I also enjoy viewing the surroundings, so adorable is the setting…just missing is seeing YOU sipping it..xoxoxo sister
Well I was having a no makeup day yesterday…
We don’t want to scare people away!
Yum! I’ve never seen a molinillo – so beautiful! And I’m reading this right before I head to my pottery class. Your pitcher is gorgeous too. I’m a total newbie at pottery, but I’d like to be able to make something like that – eventually. Thanks for another great post!
Isn’t that pitcher gorgeous! It was handmade by someone… I thrifted it! I love a bargain.
I can’t wait to see pictures of your pottery. Enjoy the process … you will love it!
Thank you so much for your kind words!
The Spanish grandmother hot chocolate looks magical, yes, but alas, way too sweet, Nance.
Ih Mr. Mark… you can always add more milk.
But I get it… it’s why I only make it once or twice a year .
Nancy, I wish I could enjoy a cup of this hot chocolate. I am doing my January dieting and this is torture (haha)!
Yes… I hear ya! I can say that it was my lunch! I did not eat the cookies. Are you proud of me?
Yes, I am!
So, what is the difference in taste between this and a more standard hot chocolate?
This is much more rich and no powdered creamers used. Plus the froth makes it delightful!
Thank you for visiting,
Nice, I’ll have to give it a try at some point.
The granny on the wrapper looks so cute!
I’ve never had Mexican hot chocolate, does it have a kick, or perhaps spicy heat? The molinillo is fabulous!
This type is not spicy but I am sure there are some that are. It’s very rich!
The Molinillos are great!
Thanks for visiting!
Yum! Great photos and tempting idea for a cozy treat. 🙂
Thanks for the visit! I am so glad you enjoyed!
I made mexican hot chocolate one time, but it no way was as authentic as yours!!! That chocolate looks out of this world!! This is making my mouth water!
Thank you… this is amAZingly good!
Ooo yes! This is so good! I admit that I often cheat by using my favorite dark chocolate. Your photos are very inviting. Makes me want to make some hot chocolate to go with my daughter’s breakfast. I think I’m going to do just that!
Thank you for introducing Mexican hot chocolate. Very tempting. 🙂
Looks so delicious. I love hot chocolate! Very helpful how you added the step by step photos.
Oh I do love Mexican Hot Chocolate, but I use half milk, half cream. Almost too sweet but oh so rich. The Molinillo kitchen tool is just beautiful. Thank you.
I use skim milk and it’s still delicious!
Thank you for enjoying!
