Artisan Cocoa Jugs☃️🍫

Can you say Molinillo?? More of our favorite artisan hot chocolate jugs have arrived! Fill with cocoa and tie a molinillo in the bow!
To make authentic Mexican Hot Chocolate, you need traditionally made chocolate, and an artisanal Mexican clay jug.
The best way to make Mexican Hot Chocolate is with clay cookware - a Mexican Kitchen’s staple. Passed down by the Aztecs, it’s still preferred for the unique flavor it lends to food. This handcrafted jug is made with ancient hand-molding techniques from the past, and finished with new techniques (and a lead-free glaze, of course) to be both functional and decorative. It’s perfect for making traditional Mexican hot chocolate.
Unexpected versatility
The jug can be used directly over heat (a flame or electric range) - just add milk and chocolate.
The pot can also be used to heat teas, soups, and coffee.
And can we talk about its triple functionality as a vase or decoration? You’ll be impressed.
Better with care
The hot chocolate jug gets better with time and care. It needs to be cured, but it’s worth it. To cure it, fill with cool water below its rim, bring the water to a boil on the stove, and allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, and allow the water and pot to cool. Discard the water, and your clay pot is ready to use.
Meet the Potter
Rodolfo Pila has been making Mexican ceramics with the help of his father since he was a boy. After attending cultural school for ceramics, he has built a repertoire blending both traditional and modern techniques. Today he makes beautiful, functional ceramics.

Mexican Hot Chocolate Sets🍫🎅

The cutest cocoa sets were unboxed at the end of the day!!
Sold out for the season we have 4 sets left! 48.00 Set
(Includes 2 mugs, cocoa, and hand carved molinillo) More large cocoa jugs, cocoa, and molinillos are on the way! 
To make authentic Mexican Hot Chocolate, you need traditionally made chocolate, a hand-carved molinillo, and the perfect ceramic mug to drink it out of. Luckily, we've put together this Mexican Hot Chocolate gift set with everything!
Ultra rich. Frothy. Chocolate. Three words that say it all. But here are a few more, because we can’t resist. With this traditional set, make real hot chocolate as it's been done for centuries in Oaxaca. (The word “chocolate” comes from the Nahuatl “xocoatl.”) Pure cacao is blended with ground almonds, pecans, walnuts and cinnamon to make the authentic Oaxacan flavor. Mix and froth it with the hand-carved molinillo whisk in the hand-molded clay jug and prepare to... what's Nahuatl for "swoon"? Handmade in Mexico.
