To make authentic Mexican Hot Chocolate, you need traditionally made chocolate, a hand-carved molinillo, and the perfect ceramic mug to drink it out of.
Cocoa is a key part of the Mexican gastronomy - it’s a legacy food made for sharing. By using everything in this Mexican Hot Chocolate Gift Set, your rich, complex-flavored, smooth hot chocolate drink will retain the unique aroma and nostalgic taste enjoyed for generations.
Villa Real Mexican Hot Chocolate with Almonds: Made in Oaxaca using a traditional recipe, this Mexican Hot Chocolate is made with simple ingredients; just cocoa butter, sugar, almond, and other nuts and spices. The result? The most delicious cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate you've ever tasted. You'll get a bag of 5 tablets (250g) to mix with milk or water to savor by the fireside.
Set of 2 Clay Mugs: Clay cookware is a staple in Mexican Kitchens. Passed down by the Aztecs, it’s preferred for the unique flavor it lends to food. This handcrafted jug is made with ancient hand-molding techniques from the past, and finished with new techniques (and a lead-free glaze, of course) to be both functional and decorative.
Small Traditional Molinillo Whisk: Our Small Molinillo is handcrafted out of natural alder wood, with one-of-a-kind details burned into each whisk. Quickly move the molinillo back and forth between the palms of your hands, and the wooden rings and holes in this traditional Mexican cooking tool will mix the chocolate up while creating a cloud-like froth. This 10'' version can be used right inside the mugs, or in a saucepan for larger batches.
All items in this collection are handmade by artisans in Mexico. Do not put the mugs or Molinillo in the dishwasher - hand wash only.
