I don’t have one of those nifty Mexican doohickeys that people use to make Mexican chocolate, but I do have something else that works good....
really good... better than it needs to....
I have been cleaning up after myself for a very long time now, and I guess it will never get any better. I lack the gene that says “think about what is likely to happen....”Here is a recipe for hot cocoa mix that is very good
