Mexican chocolate

Mexican chocolate is made from dark, bitter chocolate mixed with sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts. The end result is a "grainy" less smooth product. Chocolate is frequently purchased in "disks" although it is also available in bars and syrups. In Mexico the chocolate is used for making hot chocolate as well as in sauces such as "mole".
