Mary Luz Mejia's Hot Chocolate Recipe

This is the delicious Hot Chocolate drink Mary Luz made for our Chocolate Tasting Class' guests. 

Mary Luz's Hot Chocolate recipe:
Makes 1 Mug
  • I full cup of your choice of milk (dairy or alternative)
  • 1 tablespoon of good quality cacao powder (I used great stuff from the Belize Chocolate Company- but Chachalate, SOMA, Desbarres etc... all sell some)- if you like yours darker, you can add a little more cacao powder should you prefer
  • Coconut sugar or honey to taste
  • Pinch of Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Few drops of good vanilla
  • Pinch of cinnamon if you like (other great add ins you can experiment with: black pepper, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger)
  • A square or two of bean-to-bar dark milk or dark chocolate 
Bring milk, sugar, cacao powder to a simmer. Once combined with a whisk, add vanilla, spices, chocolate and sea salt. Whisk until frothy and serve once hot. Enjoy as is or with a marshmallow if you like!
