  • 219 g / 7.72 oz heavy cream
  • 219 g / 7.72 oz whole milk
  • 62 g / 2.19 oz Mexican chocolate


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil while whisking constantly.
  2. Serve immediately, or reserve in a thermal container during service. If the latter, shake well before serving. Depending on the quality of the container, it can remain hot from 2 to 8 hours. Make sure to check the internal temperature every hour. If it drops below food-safe holding temperatures, it needs to be re-heated above 62°C / 145°F to prevent bacteria growth. Discard any remaining liquid in the thermal container after each service.
