Mexican Hot Chocolate Recipe

I do believe I have you guys covered as far as hot chocolate recipes go!

First Ellie showed you how to make hot chocolate without powdered milk.  Next it was a gourmet hot chocolate ~ mint edition.

Today, I have my Mexican Hot Chocolate recipe.  Seriously, we live in San Antonio now…so it was bound to happen!

It is delicioso!  But in the interest of full disclosure, my kids don’t care for this one.  Rest assured they are normal kids and never heard of cinnamon in hot chocolate till this year.
