A Molinillo is a traditional kitchen tool used in making hot beverages such as hot chocolate in Mexico and Colombia. The wooden whisk is carved of one piece of wood and then a design is burned into the wood. The molinillo is held between the palms and rotated by rubbing the palms together; this rotation creates the froth in the drink.It measures 13″L. Wash in hot soapy water and air dry. This is our basic design. See also Deluxe Molinillo.
