Mexican Chocolate Drink

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Beverages

 Ingredients List

  • Mexican chocolate beverage
  • -blocks
  • Milk



For this one you must find a Mexican or Latin American grocery. Look for
chocolate beverage blocks made by Ibarra. The round molded confection is
made up of cocoa, sugar, ground almonds, and cinnamon. Two wedges are
broken off and they are melted with milk. You then use a wooden chocolate
whipper called a molinillo to mix the drink and put a bit of froth on the
top. The mixer, the molinillo, goes back hundreds of years . . . but I use
my food blender. Heat two wedges of chocolate for each cup of milk. When it
is hot pour into the blender and whip for just a moment. My sons, Channing
and Jason, are much more likely to come to the breakfast table on a cold
winter morning if I threaten them with Mexican chocolate drink.
