Blank…blank…blank…this is what was going on in my mind for days trying to figure out what to make for my letter “x”. Even though “X-tra Cheesy Macaroni and Cheese” did sound AMAZING, I felt that was a bit of a cop-out. Even better would have been “X-tra Peanut Butter Peanut Butter Cookies” but that’s a mouth full and again a bit of a cop-out. I might make those later because who cares when that much peanut butter is involved!
There is really nothing great to choose from so I was super excited when I came across another blogger who cooked her way through the alphabet also. Xocolatl translates to bitter water and is a traditional Aztec drink but is pretty much hot chocolate. I know this is not technically a food like my other recipes but I’m all out of options and we can all get past the small technicality. 🙂
This drink has a great classic hot chocolate flavor that will take you back to childhood but also has a hint of spice.It’s worth trying if you are a chocolate fan. Hope you enjoy!
