Review This Recipe
This drink is very good.
This drink is very good and warms the inside of your tummy. This is the way my grandmother use to make it for me when I was a child. But she would use cocoa instead of the chocolate. When I would go visit her in Sinaloa, Mexico she would make this for me anytime during the year.
It was great. I see some people may live in parts of the country where masa mix may not be easily available, try switching to rice flour...it's just as good. I also added grated orange rind and it gave it a little bit of a kick!
¡Quedó riquísimo! Hace unas dos horas lo leí y me puse hacerlo y recién me lo estoy tomando. ¡No mas me falta un a buena receta de tamales!
<3 CHAMPURRADO <3
This was great!!! I have never made this before so i was glad to know it was super easy!!! it was a little sweet so i used a little less sugar but still as a 1st timer it was great!
This is very good a great comfort when the weather drops below 70
mmmmmmm mmmmmmm good
This was really good. Comforting. Enticing. I found chocolate biscotti at the warehouse store, and wanted something special to go with it. This was perfect. I added cinnamon sticks as stirrers and topped it with whipped cream. Needless to say, there was NONE left!!!!

I enjoyed this recipe and now my creative flow has began. I am wondering if it would be spectacular if I used evaporated milk, Carnation of course, instead of water or if it also had a butter flavoring. Thanks for the inspiration.
OK I admit it, I like hot chocolate beverages all year round. This recipe was one I HAD to try. The brown sugar and cinnamon were a really unique flavor addition. But, I was most intrigued about having to use the sieve! The corn flour did thicken it up, but it was so good. . . like nothing I had ever tried before. Next time, instead of adding whipped cream on top, I will try a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Tried this last night. It was perfect for a cool evening with cookies.
It took a little longer than the recipe called for but boy was it worth it! A rich chocolate drink and flavor without the sometimes overpower sweetness of instant hot chocolate. I served it with fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Ole'
