Ibarra Drinking Chocolate

Drinking chocolate is an art.. And its been a work in progress since Spain began preparing cacao in drinking form in the seventeenth century.

Ibarra is a delicious blend of cocoa, and cinnamon, and coarse sugar in little paper wrapped discs that you chop up and mix into boiled milk. Its slightly spicy, and the chocolate has a very nice sweet taste that is very sippable. Not at all like your powdered milk packettes, when you boil the milk and add this in, you have to really work the chocolate in – and even then you get these nice chocolate pieces that make it a little chunky (which is how i like it). Perfect for something different to end the night. You can buy it for $4.25 at http://www.mexgrocer.com
