An exceptionally simple, flavorful recipe that is hardly sweet. Mexican chocolate is actually not sweetened, but has a deep, rich chocolate flavor which makes it great for Mole sauces. In this hot chocolate beverage, one froths the liquid with the Molinillo and drinks the cappuccino-like concoction slowly.
