A Wintertime Staple

By Andrew Zimmern

This spiced Mexican-style hot chocolate is so easy to make at home, and a thousand times more delicious than pre-packaged Swiss Miss. There’s nothing better than a mug of hot chocolate during the holidays – it’s decadent, rich, comfort in a cup that warms you up from the inside out. You can serve this wintery beverage on its own, or top it with marshmallows or whipped cream.
