Mexican Hot Chocolate:
Sold individually as a 90g tablet
Cacao was first cultivated in Mexico by the Mayans and Aztecs and is one of many gifts that Mexico has given to the world.
Mexican hot chocolate is a mixture of ground cacao flavoured with cinnamon, vanilla and sugar which is pressed into a tablet shape. Chunks of the tablets are then dissolved in hot milk or water and whisked with a Molinillo (a hand carved wooden whisk) until a creamy, foamy chocolate drink has formed.
