Expert Tips

Authentic Mexican chocolate is known for its hint of cinnamon.

If you'd like, pick up a shaker with coffee toppings, such as cocoa and cinnamon, from a coffee or gourmet food shop. Pass the shaker when serving mugs of the hot coffee so folks can sprinkle a topping or two over their whipped cream!
