My Delicious Hot Chocolate

I have a special treat for you today. I know winter is gone, but for Colombians, a cup of hot chocolate in the morning is always welcome, even when it’s warm outside.

My Delicious Hot Chocolate is rich, creamy, luscious and addictive. Every sip is a heavenly experience. In fact, I’m drinking my second cup of this hot chocolate while writing this post!

Buen provecho!



(2 servings)

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup sweet condensed milk or to your taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Put the whole milk into a saucepan and break the chocolate into pieces and add to the milk.
  2. Add evaporated milk, condensed milk and cinnamon and heat until the chocolate is melted.
  3. Whisk well and add more condensed milk if you want your chocolate sweeter.

    Ay que delicia, este chocolatico santafereno! Hoy amanecio lloviendo e hice el desayuno mas bogotano: caldo de papa y chocolate…
    Super ese sabor de la tierrita.
    Hoy celebramos el bb shower para mi nena Daniela y esta comida me da animos para el ejetreo que se avecina.
    Gracias por estas delicias!

    I made this for the family the other night. It was the BEST hot chocolate I’ve ever had, and I’m kind of a chocolate snob. We’re cooking Colombian food this week, and I’m using a few of your other recipes, too. Thank you so much for sharing them!

    Wow..this would be such a rich hot chocolate. I make mine with whole milk and dark chocolate cubes and sometimes a little cream added. With condensed milk and evaporated milk both it would be awesome.
    Loved your blog Erica…would be back again to see the treasure.

    My son asked me to make Columbian food. I found your web site and made a delicious meal of chicken cutlets, beans, plantain and arepas with cheese. Add a fresh avocado and we were all so full and happy that this recipe will have to wait …maybe only until later tonight!! I will be making more foods from your site for sure…Thanks!
