Today was sweltering, but not too hot for a taste of homemade hot chocolate at this resort in Mexico. This hot chocolate, served in ceramic bowls/mugs, was made from scratch with very hot water, and also contained cinnamon and milk.
I was hoping to try more chocolates from Mexico on this trip. After visiting some Mayan ruins today, so near the birthplace of chocolate, I couldn't help but think there must be more local cacao products, but the shops I visited carried primarily chocolates from the U.S.
