…from time to time, a liquor prepared from cocoa, and of a stimulative quality, as we were told, was presented to him in golden cups … filled with foaming chocolate
~ Bernal Diaz Del Castillo, writing of Aztec ruler Moctezuma
And we serve drinking chocolate the old way: in earthen bowls filled with fragrant foam; for a bowl of hot chocolate warms the hands, the heart, the soul.
THE PERFECT GIFT: a beautiful basket with your choice of MAYAN HEAT or CREAMY DARK drinking chocolate, a wooden molinillo frother, and a hand-thrown Dancing Lion Chocolate drinking bowl.
For each serving, boil 3/4 cup of water, remove from heat and whisk in 12 pieces of chocolate.
Cover and let sit at least 5 but preferably 20 minutes.
Reheat over medium-low heat stirring constantly until hot but not simmering.
Whisk vigorously or froth with a wooden molinillo frother.
Pour into a mug or drinking bowl and enjoy.
