Warming Up To It

“Growing up, the only hot chocolate we had at our house was the powdered stuff. It wasn’t until adulthood that I realized there was a whole other world of drinking chocolate. In fact, it varies in preparation all over the world. In Mexico, it was originally prepared as an unsweetened drink for rituals + medicinal purposes. Today, Mexican hot chocolate is a foamy, spicy-sweet concoction made with bricks of chocolate melted into milk with a dash of cinnamon + vanilla. We recently found a way to recreate this traditional chocolate experience at home in the form of these chocolate tablets. Simply break, melt, and serve. How to: Warm up a cup of milk [real or plant-based] in a saucepan on the stovetop. When the milk comes to a gentle boil, add ¼ of a brick of Abuelita chocolate and whisk until blended. Pour into your favorite mug, top with cinnamon, and pretend you’re at a café in Mexico City. ”
