For over 100 years, Spaniards have enjoyed the thickest, creamiest, richest cup of hot chocolate in the world! They dip fresh churros into a cup of this hot, soothing beverage, which is almost like molten chocolate. Amalia recreates the piping hot cup of rich, decadent 'chocolate a la taza' -- just like the one you remember when you started your day in Spain -- and it is virtually fat free!

It is so easy to make, simply follow the directions on the packet: put about 2 or 3 tablespoons of Amalia per cup of milk in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. You determine the thickness of your drink by the amount of time you let it simmer. I usually pour the chocolate drink into my cup after two minutes or so.

If you are feeling ambitious, we have a churro recipe for you on our site, and even offer a churro maker! However, donuts and other pastries are also good companions to the traditional thick chocolate.

A Tienda customer offers the following variation:

Add 1/4 cup of Amalia chocolate to 1 cup of milk over medium heat. (Not the double boiler as mentioned on the package). When the drink thickens to a pudding consistency, add either 1/2 vanilla bean split or a dash of vanilla to enhance the chocolate flavor.

    "Best cocoa bring back great memories, feels like home :) "

    "This is the only chocolate I will ever buy as long as it's available. My daughters enjoy the thick Spanish hot chocolate and this is the best one I have found. I go back to Spain every year and I have tried many. I'm a busy mom, so instead of churros, I use toasted waffles most of the time. I cut them into strips and my girls enjoy dipping then in the chocolate, as they would do with churros. I also serve fresh fruit with it, mostly sliced bananas and strawberries and they love to dip that too in this chocolate, as it is thick enough to make it fun and delicious for the whole family to enjoy. Just follow the instructions on the package and make sure to add the chocolate when the milk is still cold, and don't stop stirring over medium or medium-high heat till it's nice and thick."

    "Great for dipping churros and alone!"

    "If you love hot chocolate but find the various hot chocolate ready mixes that are available in the grocery chain stores too sweet, this is the hot chocolate for you. Sometimes, I simply mix it with milk heated in the microwave. Other times, I heat it with milk over the stove and allow it to thicken. When served thick in an espresso cup with a small dollop of whipped cream, it is a delicious afternoon treat or after dinner dessert. This is my favorite hot chocolate."

    "I loved this item. Just a little mixed with milk goes a long way. For a treat, I mixed hot milk with Amalia chocolate a la taza and mixed that with a cup of brewed coffee (the 20% torrefecto mix). It was sooooo delicious."
