Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


mmm mmm

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

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

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.


Awesome Mexican Hot Chocolate

WOW, this warms you up all over and is so easy to make. My kids won't drink any other hot cholcate after having this.


Great on a cold night !!

The kids love this Hot Cocoa after they come in from playing outside with it being so cold out. They even like taking some back outside in mugs. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
