I remember my Grandma making this for me when I spend my summers on their farm. All Latino cultures have great Hot chocolate memories. The only difference is Mexican chocolate has cinnamon, and Almond flavors infused in the chocolate. Enjoy!!

You'll definitely want to curl up next to the fireplace with a mug of this tasty hot chocolate. We had a hard time locating Mexican chocolate at our store, so used cinnamon and almond extract as Giselle suggests. This is soooo good... and easy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
