mayan hot chocolate

Got this little gem of a recipe off the chocolate soy milk carton.

Mix one cup of chocolate soy milk (or, I presume, any kind of chocolate milk), one teaspoon cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Heat and serve with a cinnamon stick.

I made my mom and hubby taste this and we all rolled our eyes and said, "That's good!"

Honestly, I've never had such gorgeous hot chocolate. Ever.

Hi, a friend of mine (for me she is like a second mom) is from Nicaragua and the national drink of this State it's called Pinolillo. It is the same recipe as your mayan chocolate drink, but in Nicaragua they put also some mais flour into the pan. You heat it and mix it well until it became thick (dense). Then you drink it as normal. It's so delicious! You should try that version too!
