Hello all~

My Grandma is 73 and she’s so cute! She asked if I wanted hot chocolate I said yes even though I hate chocolate milk since sweet drinks are just too sweet for me. But she was going to use these Abuelita Chocolates which are kind of a staple in all Mexican American households… so I thought I should give it a try. I used to only eat the chocolates as a kid and my mom would wonder where the heck they all went.. any mexicans in the house that can confirm??

It came out pretty good so I wanna share her super simple quick recipe with you!

Enjoy grandmas best mexican hot chocolate recipe!

What you need:

  • Almond Milk unsweetened version (optional)
  • Abuelita chocolates (36g)
  • 1 cute Mug
  • 1 pan to mix
  • a stove lol

P.s, the chocolates are not vegan, they contain egg and milk! (this post is from when I was vegetarian)


step 1:

For each mug, use one 36g abuelita chocolate.

step 2:

Put your milk in the pan, and drop the chocolate bar in it.

Put heat on medium.


step 3:


step 4:

Mix until it dissolves and turns into chocolate milk!


Make sure you’re using 36g bars!

I’ve never seen such small bars, but I also never make hot chocolate. So, make sure you use these thinner ones or else it will be too chocolaty for one person.

This is a simple recipe to use and it takes about 10 minutes to make. I’ve seen my grandma use these bars to make a kind of sauce, yes, sauce! She used it to make basically taquitos.. but it’s called enchiladas..

I never knew chocolate would taste good to make hot sauce but, I’m not a cook I can’t even make perfect eggs.

Anyways, hopefully your chocolate milk came out like this or better!




step 5: get your favorite mug and pour it up!

this was my favorite mug to use while visiting my parents in mexico… ahh!
