This Mexican Hot Chocolate is made with canela (cinnamon sticks) steeped in water to infuse flavor, Mexican chocolate, and milk to warm you up from the inside out. For an adult spiked hot chocolate, add a splash of Kahlua or peppermint schnapps for a rich, decadent, and boozy cocktail.
This Mexican hot chocolate is similar to champurrado, but it is not flavored with anise or sweetened with piloncillo, making this recipe a bit simpler, and tastes just as delicoso.
