Everyone loves hot chocolate.

It's warm, sweet, and wonderfully delicious.

But there’s only one type of hot chocolate that is truly better than the rest.

I'm talking about champurrado!

This isn't your friend's basic-ass powdered hot cocoa.

This Mexican chocolate atole is beautifully thick and tastes just like one huge, warm hug. ❤️

It's made with milk, cinnamon, Mexican chocolate (like Abuelita), piloncillo, and the magical ingredient, corn flour!

"Corn flour?" you say, YES, corn flour. It's what takes this drink from good to great!
