Make Mexican Hot Chocolate!

Mexican Hot Chocolate!

As the season cools into winter, Mexican Hot Chocolate is the perfect way to warm-up your afternoon. We chose this recipe because all of the ingredients are readily available in any grocery store and it’s one that your kids can participate in!

The word “chocolate” comes from the Aztec word “xocolatl,” which means “bitter water.” The cocoa bean, from which chocolate is derived, is grown in Mexico, Central America and parts of South America.

3 tablespoons instant hot chocolate mix
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup boiling water

In a large mug, mix the hot chocolate mix, chocolate syrup and cinnamon. Pour in the milk add the boiling water and stir. Yields 2 servings.
