The Drink of Champ’ions. Chocolate drinks date back to 450 BC with the Aztec and Maya peoples; they believed chocolate was magical, and would give the drinker strength and powers. Champurrado, a chocolate based drink, was invented a bit later after the Spanish wanted to add sugar to the mix. Piloncillo, or panela, is a minimally processed raw form of sugar cane, and is perfect for sweetening up this historical drink. So, stir up this easy recipe for Champurrado with Mole today to enjoy a rich and sweet balance of chocolate and mole fit for the gods. This drink is traditionally served with tamales or churros, though a Mexican concha pairs perfectly!
