Recipe: Mayan Hot Chocolate

Skill Level:  Easy
Ingredients:  1 cup milk, chocolate chips, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper

Directions:  Place a handful of chocolate chips in a mug.  Heat it in the microwave for about 45 seconds or until the chocolate is soft.  Pour milk into the mug.  Heat in the microwave for about 1 1/2 min (or until it begins to boil).  Remove and whisk in a pinch of cayenne pepper and approx 2 pinches of cinnamon.  Enjoy!!


Today's post was inspired by our trip last week to see the Maya Exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum.   This trip was a little different than our usual.  This time we went as part of a ROM/Mompreneur event.   We had a great time - the kids were spoiled with hot chocolate, fresh fruit, and cookies.  Best of all, they got to meet a Maya High Priest.  The kids were lukewarm about the Maya High Priest - might have been the blue paint or headdress.  

After our morning snack, we went into the museum to see the Maya Exhibit.  Very cool but not as much for the kiddies as for the adults.  After a quick lunch, we made our way over to see the dinosaurs and do a little more "digging" for dinosaur bones. 

If you haven't been to the Royal Ontario Museum lately, I would suggest you stop by.  It's awesome!
