Mexican Hot Chocolate Recipe

Soon sadly the Summer days will be drawing to a close and the colder Autumn snap will in full force. But I will let you into my secret in how I’m gonna stay a happy cheerful camper throughout the colder days. Mexican Hot Chocolate.  A pinch of warming cinnamon and a hint of fiery chilli paired with the dark Mexican chocolate is the recipe for preventing me from going into hibernation this Winter.  Also takes less than 5 minutes to make so have the ingredients on hand when you need a boost.

I used Taza’s Mexican chocolate to create this hot chocolate as I some left over from my Cocoa Runner’s parcel but you can use a bar of great dark chocolate to make your own.
