It’s wintertime, and I had to make this Peruvian hot chocolate recipe the moment I read the title. I know it hasn’t been long since I made Italian hot chocolate, but it’s chocolate! And it fits so perfectly with this week’s theme and the season. And I don’t have to get out of my pajamas to make this recipe. There’s just something about hot chocolate that requires PJs and cozying up on the sofa–not that I’m complaining!
Peruvian Hot Chocolate infused with Cinnamon and Allspice, the perfect treat on a cold day!
This Peruvian hot chocolate recipe has a short list of ingredients, and I was lucky enough to have the cocoa powder, cinnamon sticks, and allspice berries in my pantry. I even had milk in my refrigerator for once (it usually goes right into my iced coffee), so I only had to buy the sweetened condensed milk. One ingredient!
This recipe was super easy to make. If you can boil water, you can make this spiced hot chocolate 🙂 It’s really just a matter of boiling and stirring as you let the whole spices infuse their flavor.
I love the taste of dark chocolate, so I found that half a can of the sweetened condensed milk tasted perfect. It was just sweet enough to be a treat but it still let the cocoa shine through. I was tempted to try more, but the taste was just too good! Maybe next time I’ll go for a sweeter version.
