This is a great & simple recipe! We love it!

It's the best remedy for a family coming in from the cold!!

I tried this recipe and it is delicious. I love it since it is so cold out there today. Definitly will make it again.

I am Mexican and this is a very good hot chocolate. It brought me back memories of how my mother used to make this for us as children and always use to give us pan dulce or "sweet mexican bread" to go with it. Thanks for those beautiful moments.... :-)

We just got back from Mexico City, where we had divine hot chocolate every morning for breakfast. I've been trying to find the right combination to reproduce the taste, and this is it! Evaporated milk makes the difference - gracias!


My grandmother make us this hot chocolate when we were kids but she uses a "molinillo" to melt the chocolate and make a lot of frothy, but I use the blender to make the same thing, just put the chocolate in pieces in the blender then add the water and milk (hot but not boiled) turn in on and enjoy it.
