    excellent

    Dora Duarte from Tucson, AZ

    I love this recipe. I make it now every night now for the next early morning. Here is a little tip: to keep the film from forming on the top put saran wrap directly on top of the cocoa. It really works.

    Good

    Chrissie Foote from ,

    Since my 9 year old daughter started drinking Hot Cocoa made this way, She no longer likes nor ask for the box mix . This is her favorite drink she says. Its so easy to make and taste so good.

    It's a great recipe using Splenda, I was unsure how to omit sugar and still have the fine Nestle' hot cocoa. This is quite delightful

    Delicous Hot Cocoa

    Anita Collins from VAN BUREN, AR

    This is real good, I also put 1 tsp cocoa in coffee with diet sugar, taste to your choice. I get tired of same old coffee, so I play with different flavors to put into my coffee, some are good & some well you know? also put a little cinnamon in to too.

    Ingredient Substitution

    Bethany Curry from WICHITA, KS

    I like using heavy cream or half and half to make my cocoa richer. Sometimes it's a matter of practice, but in this case using half milk and half cream or half and half is much better. It is calorically higher, but well worth it. Just make sure to stir well and not let it boil so you don't end up with the "skin" on the surface. Enjoy!

    Robbie Johnson from ANCHORAGE, AK

    I made the verison using Splenda No Calorie sweetener and it turned out as rich as a recipe using sugar. I also add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to each cup.

    Delicious Hot Cocoa

    Nowell Thomas from Rosamond, CA

    I made this hot coca, and put some vanilla in it, after I took it off of the burner, and with some mini- marshmellows in it, on a warm, or a chilly day, it is fantastic, even my neighbors have had some and they like it also. Thank You for this great recipe.

    It was so terribly cold last evening that I tried this cocoa for my family to try and warm up. It was wonderful. Think the vanilla added just the right touch.

    a nice alternative

    Elizabeth Mays from STEVENSVILLE, MI

    I received a free sample of Splenda in the mail so I thought I'd try this. I was pleasantly surprised. It was still really sweet so I didn't feel like I was missing anything at all by cutting out real sugar. It was actually pretty rich tasting. Yum!

    Sandra Deweese from ROMANCE, AR

    I have never used Splenda in anything because I always thought it wouldn't be sweet enough for me. But I tried this recipe and it was great. I will use splenda again and this recipe too.

    I fixed this one very cold night just before Christmas. It was simple and fun. It was delightful to sit in front of the TV with my son and enjoy a cup of hot, delicious cocoa on that cold, snowy night.
