Mexican Chocolate

4.5 ounces Mexican cinnamon

3.5 cups scalded milk

2 ounces bitter chocolate

1.5 inch cinnamon stick

In the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water melt the Mexican chocolate (which is sweetened) with the bitter chocolate. When smooth, add the scalded milk and cinnamon stick. Blend thoroughly. Add extra sugar to taste if desired. Pour into an earthenware pitcher (called a jarro in Mexico) and insert an oversize swizzle stick (the molinillo). In this country, a long-handled, spoon-tipped martini-stirrer will answer the same purpose. Twirl the handle between the palms of your hands until the liquid is foamy; this also serves to prevent a skin from forming over the hot milk. Serve and drink immediately. Serves 4 to 6.

Note: If Mexican chocolate is not available, use 4.5 ounces plain semisweet or sweet chocolate (as desired) with two teaspoons ground cinnamon

I would like to take a moment of your time to tell you what an amazing employee I have found Ann  to be. She was so helpful to me during all facets of the gift ordering process. I have never dealt with your company before and it was with fear and trepidation that I emailed for help. I need'nt have worried because Ann was there. She took care of everything and made my holiday giving a pleasure. I have since ordered chocolates for family members and Ann was right there to be of assistance. Because of her I have made you guys my chocolatier of choice and record. You have a star here!  - Meg from Ontario, CA
