Recomiendo absolutamente este chocolate caliente con especias.
Y si no se toma todo se guarda en una jarrita y se toma al otro día.
Lo calenté en el microondas y voilá!

  30. Wow! What a fab drink! Do you know I really like chai latte which is popular in most coffee bars now in the UK. My only problem is that I find it too sweet. The answer is to make your own (as always!). But this chai hot chocolate is a proper treat! Thank you for sharing this great recipe Gloria.
