It’s cold in Mexico!
Although we won’t be having a snow day anytime soon it’s cold enough that most of us are wearing clothing that is not shorts and a tank top. Since I get cold very easily I’ve been wearing my good share of leggings, sweaters, and fuzzy socks….it’s in the 60’s, I’m well aware that I’m quite the wimp.
A warm treat here in Mexico is Mexican hot chocolate! What’s the different between hot chocolate and Mexican hot chocolate? Mexican hot chocolate has spices in it such as cinnamon and chili powder for that sweet and spicy goodness! It’s so easy you can make it yourself! Or better yet some places in the US sell the chocolate blocks…I used the brand Ibarra.
Anybody who really knows me on a personal level knows I don’t drink alcohol but I honesty love Kahlua…surprise! I thought I would try some in my Mexican hot chocolate and happy I did!
I use milk for my hot chocolate…always! If you are making a serving for yourself grab the mug you are wanting to use and fill it with milk about 3/4 and then add a shot of Kahlua. Pour it into a saucepan and keep stirring until it gets steamy and drop in your block of chocolate! Keep stirring until the chocolate is melted and immediately pour it into your mug.
Top it off with whipped cream and cajeta! Cajeta is caramel made with goats milk, vanilla, and cinnamon and so delicious!
This rich delicious drink will totally warm you up this holiday season!
