Bodacious Olive Mayan Coco
Hand blended from cacao powder, demerara sugar, almonds, ancho, Ceylon cinnamon, allspice and cloves.
May be used as a baking ingredient or to make Mexican Hot Chocolate.
To Make Mexican Hot Chocolate:
The traditional liquid to use to make this drink is water but many fans of Mexican hot chocolate prefer using milk. Add 1 cup water (or milk) to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring in the Mayan Coco blend and then reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 2-5 minutes (stirring frequently). For an even more authentic version, stir in a teaspoonful or more of masa (Mexican corn meal used to make tortillas). The key to making the perfect Mayan hot chocolate is to use a whisk and vigorously stir until a thick froth forms. Pour into a cup and serve.
There is no set amount of Mayan Coco mix to use as some will prefer a bit more flavor and others a bit less. We recommend the first time you make it you use 1 tablespoon per cup of water or milk.
