Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



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.

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

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.
