Yes, in S. Fla there are special bars of chocolate--you break off some and melt it in the milk.

You simply put the milk in a pan with the chocolate and heat it slowly, melting the chocolate. Whisk it and you're done. Needless to day, whole milk tastes the best. I've never made it with skim. The other night, I didn't have any Abuelita, so I just chunked up a Cadbury bar and melted that with milk...oh it was SO good. You don't need a mix - this is so easy, and no chemicals. Who knew? Not me...
OK, I have one of those disks of chocolate. How much milk do I use? I even have one of those Mexican "whisks" (wooden) that you swish in the milk while it's heating. Check your PM's Karen.

Me too ... doesn't that stuff taste weird? I like my coffee pretty light, but I'll take it black if that's the only cream available.

^No fat free cream does not taste wierd at all. I don't often buy it. I usually use skim milk unless I am at a coffeehouse and then I splurge and go with half and half.
