It's all the rage

I see it everywhere I go.
Mexican Chocolate.
Starbucks has it.
Nordstrom Cafe has it.
The coffee cart in the mall has it... Kelly's.
And every time I see it I think to myself "Who in their right mind pays $4 for something you can make at home for less than a quarter?"
The answer is: People who don't know what it is.
So here you go my friends, Ibarra Chocolate. (Or you can get Abuluelita's, but I grew up on Ibarra, so I'm a bit partial.)

It's in the International aisle at your market. Two triangles per cup or servings, warm milk. Strain it if you like, some whip, cinammon and WHA-la. Magic.

For sure! Same thing with the Chai Tea Latte's. I love that drink but can't afford it. So... I buy some chai tea bags and vanilla/cinammon flavored creamer... mix 'em up and voila!
