champurrado.jpg When you are needing a comforting, warm beverage try a mug of Champurrado, a thick, rich beverage using Mexican chocolate and sometimes flavored with a tiny bit of anise. Mexican chocolate adds a rich chocolate flavor and cannot be substituted with other chocolates. It is thickened slightly with masa but it's not nearly as thick as Atole, but both are sweeteened with piloncillo, a Mexican sugar.
