1 disk of Mexican Chocolate
1/4 cup Chocolate Syrup
1/4 cup Half & Half
1 1/2 cup milk
Mini marshmallows or whipped cream
-In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients and cook on low to medium low heat. Stir with a whisk constantly until all the chocolate is melted and all ingredients are incorporated smoothly and it's steaming slightly. Turn off heat and using a ladle pour the hot cocoa into drinking mugs, top with whipped cream or mini marshmallows and sprinkle a tiny amount of ground cinnamon on top.
-To make an easy Mexican Mocha; fill drinking mug half way with hot coffee and the other half with the hot cocoa mixture.
-For those of us watching our figures: make a low fat version of this hot cocoa by omitting the half and half and chocolate syrup; use low fat milk and a smaller amount of whipped cream.
It's fun to get together and have something good to eat at least once a day. That's what human life is all about-enjoying things. Julia Child
