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.
