Recipe

Hot Chocolate Mayan Style

  • Yield: 4 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces (squares) bitter, un-sugared bakers' chocolate
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • Salt to taste (minimal)
  • 3 cups hot milk
  • 4 cinnamon sticks

Directions

  • Chop the chocolate and heat it in the water until melted. Add honey, salt, and beat the hot chocolate water with a balloon wire whip as you add the warmed milk. To make it more frothy and give more food value, you can beat up an egg or two, add hot chocolate to it, then pour it into the chocolate cooking pot and continue to whip. Serve in mugs with cinnamon-stick stirrers in each.
