Mexicana hot chocolate

This traditional Mexican hot chocolate is wonderfully self-indulgent!

What you need

100 g plain chocolate, broken into pieces
450 ml milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 tsp soft brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
To serve
4 sticks cinnamon
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Method

  1. Place the broken chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Heat gently until melted, about 3-5 min.

  2. Meanwhile, place the milk in a separate pan with the vanilla, sugar and cinnamon and heat until just below boiling point.

  3. Transfer the milk and chocolate to a blender. Process until well mixed and frothy.

  4. Pour into warmed glasses. Garnish with cinnamon sticks and ground cinnamon.
