Egg Nog Mexican Hot Chocolate

Egg Nog Mexican Hot Chocolate It’s super simple to make and tastes absolutely divine! Egg Nog + hot chocolate are my kind of thing. As I was mixing this up, I thought back to my Starbucks days as a barista. Egg Nog Lattes and Gingerbread Lattes were crazy popular around this time of year. So were the peppermint mochas….and the Egg Nog Chai.

I guess what I’m trying to say is you all love your hot drinks. So, give this one a whirl after a long day of shoveling snow and get cozy with a blanket by the fire. Just thinking about that makes me relaxed already. Ahhhh…….

Egg Nog Mexican Hot Chocolate 2No step by step photos today because this is ridiculously easy to make and takes under 5 minutes in the microwave. Yes, I said microwave! I don’t want to dirty a pot I have to wash if I can just dirty a cup instead! #lazymomsunite

Feel free to find a cookie, some more chocolate or some other snacks to eat along side. Yummy holiday treats make me happy 🙂 Actually, all food makes me happy. Except maybe chicken livers. But I can explain why later.

    I think I’m one of those few people who think cinnamon and chocolate do NOT mix, ick. Cinnamon ruins yummy chocolate. Now I like both seperately but for some reason not together. But i’m totally going for it, sans cinnamon 🙂

    If you really want to add the Mexican in…put in a dash of cayenne as well. Not enough to make it spicy, but enough to hint at background heat. Now THAT is a true Mexican cocoa!

    What makes this Mexican? As far as I’ve tried, home or at restaurants and coffee shops, No chocolate is done like this. It is much more simple, with milk or water. Yes, cinnamon, but no eggnog, cayene pepper, nutmeg, nor marshmallow.
