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'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!


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


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!!!!


Excellent. Well worth looking for the chocolate to make this drink. One of the best hot drinks around, and the cinn. just add that little kick. So glad we tried it. Hope more people will try this drink. Very good.
