  1. This brings back some memories for me!! I used to work at a place in college and the cooks were from mexico and they used to make a batch of this stuff for us every now and then when it was cold. Best hot chocolate ever! I like to put a little pinch of cayenne in mine too 😉

  2. Yum! Looks like it’s time to stock up on some powdered milk again so I can make this. Thanks for sharing this on MM. Pinned and will be including this in a hot cocoa roundup.
