Abuelita Chocolate is as Mexican as you can possibly get (just like me) however, it is composed principally by sugar and chocolate which in terms of healthiness and some other conditions that may apply (Diabetes or Hipoglycemia) it´s not ideal for everyone... If you are Mexican and grew up having a cup of hot chocolate in a rainy afternoon you will know what i am talking about...

This is my homemade chocolate abuelita transformed into a protein + buttery consistency + crunchy loaded dessert... i am sure you will never know what the secret ingredient is!
