First of all, you need to gather all the ingredients you will need. You can buy them at a local store or even better you can make your own by using prepared ingredients. Try to get a good quality brand of hot chocolate mix. You should be able to find it in any supermarket or even better in the kitchenware section. When choosing a brand, you should consider what kind of taste you want in your drink. If you like it light, then you might want to choose a dark chocolate which has more cocoa powder.

Second, boil the chocolate in the pot until it melts. You may need to put in a few inches of water to help it stick together and also speed up the melting process. Once the chocolate is fully melted, you can pour it into a mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Depending on your taste, you may use either the chocolate liquor or just plain cocoa powder.

Make A Large Batch Of The Chocolate

If you want to serve it as a gift to friends and family, it would be best to make a large batch of the chocolate. That way, you will not have a problem with your hot chocolate recipe at home. Store bought mixes usually have a smaller amount of cocoa powder so it won’t take as long to melt and mix. Making your own mix will also save you some money since you will not have to buy it.

It is really simple to make and if you have never made a hot chocolate before, I recommend that you start with the basic recipe. As mentioned above, you will probably have to experiment a bit to find out what your personal preference is. There are plenty of different flavors to choose from and it is up to your personal taste buds to decide which one you like best. For example, there are dark chocolates versus milk chocolate and white chocolates versus mint. You may even like to try different varieties, such as hot cocoa or hot chocolate. If you’re adventurous, you might even try to add nuts or raisins to the mix.

Use High Quality Chocolate

When making a Mexican hot chocolate recipe, it is important to use high quality chocolate. Some cheaper brands may not hold up to the heat as well and could end up burning. Once you have found a high quality brand of chocolate that you can trust, then you can move on to other ingredients to put into your hot chocolate mixture.


As with any Mexican hot chocolate recipe, it is important to stir your ingredients thoroughly before you add them to your mixture. You don’t want to over stir or else the mixture will become lumpy. It is important not to overheat the chocolate as this will reduce the quality and taste of the end product. It is also a good idea to make sure that you have enough chocolate to fully consume by stirring once every ten minutes or so. You don’t want to overheat the chocolate and destroy the mixture.
