Guest Post! Mexican Spiced Hot Chocolate by Ricki Jill from Art @ Home

Hello, y'all!  My name is Ricki Jill, and my blog is called Art @ Home.  I am so excited to write a guest post for Rissa because she was one of my very first "bloggy friends."  I have always wanted to visit Australia, and in honor of Rissa, I thought I would share my fantastic Mexican Spiced Hot Chocolate recipe since it is the beginning of winter Down Under.

  Mexican Spiced Hot Chocolate 
 2 oz. (2 squares) unsweetened chocolate 
1/3 cup sugar
4 cups milk 
pinch salt 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla 

Garnish: 
1 teaspoon chipotle chili pepper 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
whipped cream 

 Mix chocolate, sugar, milk, and salt in a two quart sauce pan over medium low heat until the chocolate is melted and the ingredients are well blended.  Add vanilla.  Pour hot chocolate into mugs. 

 Garnish each with two or three tablespoons whipped cream, and two pinches each of chipotle chili pepper and ground cinnamon. 

 Recipe serves four.

  Enjoy! 

 Blessings!
