Warm the tortillas in the microwave, just enough to make them pliable, about 10-15 seconds. Carefully fold the tortillas into quarters. Using scissors, cut snowflake shapes out of each tortilla, just like cutting a paper snowflake. You can either fry these until crispy or bake in a 350 F over for a few minutes.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar ( or just powdered sugar if you want white snowflakes.) Serve warm.
We made our Mexican hot chocolate from Nestle's Abueleto Mexican Chocolate. You melt the circles of spiced chocolate with milk and froth in the blender once the milk is warm and the chocolate is melted.
or, you can make your own. For each cup, you will need:
1 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon chili powder (optional -some kids don't like it.)
1/4 teaspoon cinammon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoons sugar
In a small saucepan, on medium-low heat, pour in the milk, cocoa powder, chili powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. Whisk until the hot chocolate is nice and frothy, about 1 minute. Top with whipped cream or marshmallows, and enjoy!
We served ours in snowman cups with snowmen marshmallows. Not exactly Mexican, but it went with a snow theme.
