Aztec Hot Chocolate – Recipe

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon and more to top
  • ¼ tsp. ground dried red chilies
  • ½ tsp. ground dried ginger
  • 4 – 6 cubes of good quality chocolate (use milk chocolate for a sweet version, dark chocolate for an intense flavor or semisweet chocolate for a happy medium)*
  • Handful of white chocolate curls (optional topping)

*The number of cubes of chocolate will depend on how large they are and how intense you want the flavour)


  1. Warm a deep, heavy bottom pan over medium-high heat and add milk, cinnamon, ground dried red chilies and ground dried ginger.  Combine until spices are well incorporated into the milk and bring to a boil.
  2. Turn off the heat, move pan to cool surface and whisk in chocolate cubes until completely combined.
