Mexican Hot Chocolate RecipeI like to add a little sweetness and spice to my hot chocolate, which is why I love this Mexican Hot Chocolate mix that I make myself at home. Plus, it is super quick and easy to fix and is the perfect comfort food for these cold winter days.

I buy hot chocolate mixes from time to time, but this is honestly just as good as anything off the shelf and is so much cheaper than buying the premade mixes. If you want to season this any other way, go ahead and do so, since this recipe is flexible enough to allow that. Sometimes I even just remove the spices and make it plain. So long as it is rich, chocolatey and served in a hot mug I can wrap my fingers around, it is just perfect for me!
