    JUST LIKE HOME

    claudia jimenez from Griffith, IN

    I am Mexican and this is a very good hot chocolate. It brought me back memories of how my mother used to make this for us as children and always use to give us pan dulce or "sweet mexican bread" to go with it. Thanks for those beautiful moments.... :-)

    Just Like Mexico

    Lea from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

    We just got back from Mexico City, where we had divine hot chocolate every morning for breakfast. I've been trying to find the right combination to reproduce the taste, and this is it! Evaporated milk makes the difference - gracias!

    Yum, nice and creamy

    Pamela Rodriguez from ALBUQUERQUE, NM

    I didn't realize how creamy this would be. I loved it! I'm always looking for ways to make my hot chocolate creamier. Now I'll always use evaporated milk.

    easy method

    NORMA MARTINEZ from eL pASO, TX

    My grandmother make us this hot chocolate when we were kids but she uses a "molinillo" to melt the chocolate and make a lot of frothy, but I use the blender to make the same thing, just put the chocolate in pieces in the blender then add the water and milk (hot but not boiled) turn in on and enjoy it.

    This recipe brings back memories of Junior High when I needed to make something for my spanish class. This was a very easy recipe to do. The Hot chocolate turned out perfect! My teacher raved about it.

    Chocolate Caliente or Mexican Hot Chocolate

    Carole Finney from Harrisville, OH

    We really like hot chocolate at our house. This is the best recipe that I have ever made. My family usually finds something wrong about hot chocolate. It has to be just right and this is.
