    A unique hot chocolate.

    gloria monroe from Paris, TN

    I was amazed to find this version of Hot Chocolate was very good. I was surprised when I first read the ingredients, but I love oatmeal and thought I'll give it a try and I really enjoyed it. I found it to be smooth and rich.

    Good, but lumpy

    Tina Caron from WISCASSET, ME

    I made this hot chocolate on a very cold day here in Maine. It was good (I love the idea of making it with oatmael), but the chocolate powder was very lumpy, even after it whipped for several minutes with my whisk. What did I do wrong?

    I tried this today and I used other cocoa powder instead of the Nesquik! It's was bad for homemade,but my kids didn't care for it! I will try it again with Nesquik! Hopefully my kids will like it better! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
