Decadent Spanish Hot Chocolate


December 12, 2017

In Spain it’s called Chocolate Caliente and a little of this hot chocolate delicacy goes a long way. This is not your watered down sugary American variety. A small portion will satisfy any sweet craving. Once you try this Spanish version you’ll never go back! In Spain it’s usually served with churros for dipping. But no one says you can’t do the same with a donut!

2Add corn starch.

3Simmer the mixture as you continue to whisk for another 2 minutes.
