    soo good I didn't even want a biscuit with it! A great chocolate substitute for me and cheaper than ready made mixes. I'll use a little less cinnamon next time tho, Thanks! - 1/31/08

  • I have this same recipe only I use real coconut milk or natural/organic light coconut milk from a can. Plus, Stevia has been noted for being bad for the body like white sugar so I use agave nectar - only less. I also use dark chocolate cocoa instead of regular for health benefits. Yummy! - 1/21/10

  • I used granulated sugar instead of a substitute. It was quite good, though I think next time I will cut out the cinnamon. - 1/14/10

  • This recipe is great! I made it today for my kids who are home with strep throat. I modified it slightly (only added 2 1/2 cups of whole milk). It turned out absolutely delicious and probably the best hot chocolate I've tasted! - 1/7/10

  • Very tasty. However, I did the same thing, cut the recipe in half and it was still too sweet. So I will cut back on the sweetness next time. But what a nice treat! - 2/14/08

  • This is how I've always made cocoa. For a change, try Hershey's Special Dark cocoa, peppermint extract (along with vanilla, not instead of), or orange extract for Mayan cocoa. Brown sugar is also very good instead of white. And a pinch of salt. Thanks for posting! - 12/31/07
