Aztec Chocolate and Spanish Chocolate Drink
ready in: under 30 minutes
recipe id: 24729
1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup boiling water
ground chiles to taste
Aztec Chocolate: Grate the unsweetened chocolate into a bowl and cover it with a little of the boiling water. Mash the mixture into a paste. Add the rest of the water and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer until frothy. Add the pepper and chilies to liven up the drink.
The chocolate will not totally dissolve and will have a grittiness to it. For a more authentic drink let the mixture cool and then beat until frothy and drink.
Spanish Chocolate: Follow the directions for the Aztec Chocolate omitting the pepper and chilies and add 3 teaspoons of sugar, plus a dash of cinnamon.
