Mexican hot chocolate

No, it's not spicy. But feel free to throw in some chilli powder if you like!

For two people:

  • 2 cups of milk
  • A vanilla bean OR a teaspoon of real vanilla extract (not imitation)
  • About 30g of dark chocolate (at least 60% cocoa)
  • A cinnamon stick*
  • Add a tiny bit of sugar if needed, but taste it first - it's not meant to be sickly sweet

Simple: boil it all in a saucepan until the chocolate is melted and mixed through. Take out the cinnamon stick and vanilla bean. Whisk until frothy.

*Don't use powdered cinnamon, if possible. It will make your drink gritty. In fact, maybe you could also stir it with a dried whole chilli instead of chilli powder for spice... now that's thinking!
