    mmm mmm

    Julie Wilson from Mt Vernon, TX

    if there is one thing I do its hot chocolate. I don't do coffee, I rarely do soda and I do tea sometimes, but hot cocoa is my thing and this one hits the spot. Even just smelling it after its poured up is tantalizing to my taste buds.

    Best of Both Worlds

    Shadow Kistner from Cave City, AR

    I tried this cocoa drink, because I like chocolate a lot and my husband likes cinnamon, I thought what the heck, I am one who will try anything once,well most anything. I made it and gave a cup to my husband first, he took a small sip and I walked away to get mine, and before I could set down to enjoy my cocoa, he was asking for seconds. So yes this was a beverage I will be making on those cool nights when he is home from his job. Thank you for such a good idea.

    Great hot drink

    ANN ALSULAIMAN from PERRY, MI

    We love hot chocolate. We tried this one and it was a big hit. The touch of cinnamon was so good and a big change. We mix up a big batch on cold Michigan nights to sip in front of the fire.

    Love this Mexican Hot Cocoa

    Linda Rios-Anderzak from CLAWSON, MI

    I usually make Mexican hot cocoa with a product where everything is already done for you in chunk form. However, upon searching for recipes here I found this recipe, tried it and loved it. I can adjust the cinnamon to suit my taste. Easy and fast to make using products I already had on hand. Thanks

    Almost right

    Tiffany Preble from BATAVIA, OH

    This hot cocoa recipe is pretty good, but if you are use to the real deal, it's a bit of a let down. It tastes good, and the consistancy was good, but not perfect. It's actually harder to make the cocoa this way than it is the way I was taught growing up. The spice was just a little off, but that could be adjusted by the amount of cinnamon/chocolate you use.
