Mexican Hot Chocolate Party Favor

mexican hot chocolate dippers

For our Valentines Day dinner party this year, I’m going with a bit of a Spanish flare – paella, tapas, flamenco fan style garland, spanish wine, and so on. The exception to this is the Mexican hot chocolate dippers that I’ll be making to accompany the heart shaped churros I plan to make for dessert. I love the mixture of spicy and sweet in mexican chocolate, so I thought it would make a really cute addition to the party to melt some chocolate onto the honey dippers from my Esselle hostess box.

The attached message, “Love and Chocolate are best served hot” is actually a spin on a german proverb (“love and coffee are best served hot”), but I changed the words a bit for this quirky valentine treat. The back of the tag could easily host a custom sentiment for my guests as well.

The best part is, with the exception of the honey dippers (which you can also find here), you might just have all of the ingredients on hand. Keep reading for the step by step instructions, recipe, and the printable tags! 


  • Dark Chocolate Chips (10 oz bag)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (or less if you’re not a nutmeg person)
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Hot Chocolate Valentine Tag

I love that they’re kind of playful and kind of mature.  I think they remind guests to relish in the sweeter things in life – and not just on Valentines Day!
