Mexican Hot Chocolate
Life's Little Sweets
Mexican Hot Chocolate is made on the stovetop and takes only minutes to make with simple pantry ingredients like evaporated milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and semisweet chocolate chips.
It is so easy to make this Mexican Hot Chocolate recipe right on your stovetop and easily can be adapted for the slow cooker/Crock-Pot.
This recipe also feeds many people because it makes 8 servings. It does thicken as it cooks, so you can cut it with whole milk if it gets too thick.
In these photos, I topped the Mexican Hot Chocolate with Marshmallow Creme which is something my mom used to do for my hot chocolate if we did not have any marshmallows in the house.
