This set includes traditional tools and high-quality ingredients for making Mexican hot chocolate at home.
Molinillo: 13" H x 2" Dia Jug: 10.5" H x 6.5" Dia
To make authentic Mexican Hot Chocolate, you need traditionally made chocolate, a hand-carved molinillo, and an artisanal Mexican clay jug.
Luckily, we've put together this Mexican Hot Chocolate gift set with all three! Cocoa is a key part of Mexican gastronomy - it’s a legacy food made for sharing. By using everything in our Mexican Hot Chocolate Gift Set, your rich, complex-flavored, smooth hot chocolate drink will retain the unique aroma and nostalgic taste enjoyed for generations.
Villa Real Mexican Hot Chocolate with Almonds: Made in Oaxaca using a traditional recipe, this Mexican Hot Chocolate is made with simple ingredients; just cocoa butter, sugar, almond, and other nuts and spices. The result? The most delicious cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate you've ever tasted. You'll get a bag of 5 tablets (250g, 8.82oz) to mix with milk or water to savor by the fireside.
Red Clay Hot Chocolate Jug: Clay cookware is a staple in Mexican Kitchens. Passed down by the Aztecs, it’s preferred for the unique flavor it lends to food. This handcrafted jug is made with ancient hand-molding techniques from the past and finished with new techniques (and a lead-free glaze, of course) to be both functional and decorative. The jug is about 9 inches tall.
Large Traditional Molinillo Whisk: Our Large Molinillo is handcrafted out of natural alder wood, with one-of-a-kind details burned into each whisk. Quickly the molinillo back and forth between the palms of your hands, and the wooden rings and holes in this traditional Mexican cooking tool will mix the chocolate up while creating a cloud-like froth. All items in this collection are handmade by artisans in Mexico. Do not put the Jug or Molinillo in the dishwasher - handwash only.
