In my high school Spanish class, we once took a "trip to Spain" via VHS tapes. One thing I'll never forget was the part about the "Chocolaté" they drank, so thick they dipped churros in it - this was the late night snack after dancing (according to the VHS tape...?) How true to life any of it was, I don't know, but if I ever go to Spain, I am hunting down a cup of chocolate with a churro first thing!

After simmering the milk, sugar, salt, vanilla and chocolate for about 4 min, you are done!
I made some fresh whipped cream to top it off, infused with vanilla and sugar to taste:
