There are few foods I can never turn down. One of them is hot cocoa. There’s just something about curling my fingers around a warm mug on a cool day that gives me instant cozy vibes.
I remember the first time I had Mexican hot cocoa. Never before had I imagined that the flavors of chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon could take my beloved hot cocoa to new heights. It was as if I became cocoa enlightened, and there was no going back!
These Mexican Hot Cocoa Cupcakes offer that same medley of delicious flavors in an easy-to-make dessert. Here’s how to make your own hot cocoa nirvana. First, get your ingredients measured and ready.
Once the cupcakes are done, let them cool completely before frosting. I love topping mine with vanilla frosting, but the chocolate and cream cheese varieties are yummy, too.
Finally, top your cupcakes with a sprinkling of cinnamon. And if you want to get crazy, add cinnamon candies, chili powder or chocolate shavings.
And there you have it—hot cocoa heaven in a cupcake!
