Peruvian Hot Chocolate Infused with Cinnamon and Allspice

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!

The Ingredients

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!

The Process

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.

Clear & Accurate Directions
Accurate Time(s)
Chocolate lovers need to try this recipe! It's so easy to make and so much better than instant. This Peruvian hot chocolate is rich and sweet but not as much as thicker drinking chocolate. The taste of the cinnamon and allspice are subtle, but there is enough to make this hot chocolate recipe distinct. I kept the sweetened condensed milk to the minimum amount so my hot chocolate tasted a little more like dark chocolate, but you can easily adjust the sweetness to suit your taste. Enjoy!
