Mexico - Spiced Hot Chocolate

It's that time of year. Autumn is getting closer and the nights will start getting darker soon. I'm not a fan of tea or coffee but I love a warming hot chocolate on a cool night. This recipe is especially warming due to the spices used.


Ingredients:

1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup of cocoa
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon cloves
6 cups milk
whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
nutmeg


In a pan combine the flour, cocoa, sugar, water, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Stir well and cook on medium until it forms a smooth paste.


Now add the milk and stir again until the chocolate paste is mixed into the milk. Continue to heat the pan on medium until the milk is scalded but don't let it boil.


While this is happening you can add the vanilla to the cream and whip until it's the thickness you like. I like soft whipped cream best.


Pour some hot chocolate into mugs and add a spoon of cream then a light dusting of nutmeg.


Ooh, this was delicious! The spices made it lovely and comforting. It smelled lovely and tasted even better. The perfect self-care treat, even holding the warm mug is relaxing. I love it. I'll be making hot chocolate this way from now on. YUM!
