Christmas Eve holds special meanings to the people of Spain and is celebrated in different manners in the varied regions. In the Pyrenees, rural folk remember their dead, in urban centers is it a time of gift-giving and elsewhere in Spain the Midnight Mass is celebrated outdoors with the shepherds, just as it has been done since the Middle Ages.

Appease your family gathering as out-of-town guests begin to arrive and celebrate your Christmas Eve with a little Spanish Hot Chocolate from The Cook & Kitchen Staff at

Break chocolate into small pieces and place in a saucepan with milk. Heat slowly, stirring with a whisk until just before the boiling point. Dissolve cornstarch in a few tablespoons water. Add dissolved cornstarch to chocolate mixture and stir constantly until the liquid thickens. Serve hot in warmed cups.
