This is the masa harina I used for this recipe. I usually take it out of the bag and store it in the freezer for longer use.
Take a medium pot and set it over medium heat. Add the water.
Add the cinnamon sticks too. Let the cinnamon cook for about 10 minutes or until the water changes color
I used a little but more than this half of chocolate bar. It's a personal preference . If you want a more chocolatey flavor use the whole disk of chocolate
I prefer to use the abuelita brand mexican chocolate. You can also use the Ibarra brand. Thiscan be found at the hispanic section of your local supermarket.😀
As soon as the chocolate disc melted I poured my brown sugar in. I had no pilloncillo which is traditional to this recipe. Using brown sugar or even dark brown sugar is acceptable. 😀
Use my measurements for the sugar or adjust it to your taste.
Now let's mix the milk with the masa flour.
Blend this well. Removing all lumps.
Add the milk/masa mixture to the chocolate water. Whisking it in quickly. Soon after lower the heat until is has thickened to the consistency of a light gravy😃 stirring occasionally, about 10min.
Look at how thick and delicious this looks. I removed the cinnamon sticks. It is now ready to serve. Enjoy ☺️
If you prefer a thicker drink add a little bit more masa harina, if you like it chocolatey add the whole disc of chocolate. It's just a matter of taste. This is my personal favorite. 😊
