I love this time of year. I’m all about drinking yummie drinks to warm up, when there is a chill in the air. After a day of running around and shopping till I’m dropping, I love warming up with a good cup of hot chocolate. My grandmother used to make the best Mexican hot chocolate almost every night in the winter, and it’s become a source of comfort. I use the Abuelita hot chocolate tablets. It gives the hot chocolate the most amazing flavor.
Mexican Hot Chocolate
- 3 cups milk
- 1 table of abuelita chocolate
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, bring milk to a boil. Add the tablet of abuelita chocolate. I usually break it off, instead of using the full tablet. Stir until chocolate is well blended. Add the cinnamon and vanilla. Stir some more. Let it cool down a bit and enjoy!
I love making a batch and putting on my favorite Real Housewife show after the kiddos have gone to bed. It is my own little piece of heaven. I usually whip some up when I have a few minutes to spare. I sometimes skip the chocolate and just warm some milk to help me go to bed. It always seems to work like in a charm and helps me unwind. I also wanted to share with you a webisode of another of my favorite milk dessert recipes, flan! One of my favorite bakeries, Porto’s Bakery (they make the BEST potato balls and Cuban sandwiches), shares their delish flan recipe! It’s so good! Check out their world famous flan recipe below and don’t forget to check out El Vaso Medio Lleno Webshow and YouTube channel.
