tunes and chocolate

WTMD's top albums of 2005! Not only amazing radio to listen to, but a great buy list for my music collection. (Craig, Fools and Horses is No. 54!)

Why is it when I google for hot chocolate recipes, that Mrs. Bush's is no. 1?! Sorry babe, not going to go there. But here is one I would like to try:

Traditional Mexican Hot Chocolate:

6 cups milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 ounces unsweetened Mexican-style chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
Stick cinnamon (for optional garnish)

In a large saucepan, combine milk, sugar, chocolate, ground cinnamon, and salt. Heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate has melted and the milk is very hot. (Do not let the milk come to a boil.)
Beat 2 eggs in a mixing bowl. Stir in one cup of the hot mixture into the eggs, then return this mixture to the saucepan. Cook 2 to 3 minutes more over low heat, still stirring.
Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Beat with a molinillo or a rotary beater until it is very frothy. Pour into mugs, garnish with cinnamon sticks, and serve. Makes about 6 (8-ounce) servings.
