This Mexican hot chocolate mix is a delicious way to warm yourself up from the inside out. Enjoying a mug of hot cocoa is one of the things I love most about the colder weather. Sure, I could drink hot chocolate in the summer but who does that? I have discovered over the last few years that I love Mexican hot chocolate. If you aren't familiar with this hot cocoa recipe, it is basically a traditional hot cocoa mix that also has cinnamon, chili powder, nutmeg and/or cayenne pepper in it. The addition of these warming spices to the already delicious hot chocolate mix give it an amazingly complex flavor.
There are a few different recipes for Mexican hot chocolate out there and you can adjust the spices to your own personal tastes. I put together this Mexican hot chocolate mix as a mason jar gift but you could certainly just add the ingredients to a pan of warm milk to serve to your own family. For a variation on this hot chocolate mix in a jar, you can actually buy Mexican chocolate (affiliate link) and use that instead of the chocolate chips. Since I didn't have any on hand, I just used plain chocolate chips.
