Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



Despite all the five star ratings, I was nervous about this recipe. It is wonderful, however and actually better than store bought. Just wish I had some marshmallows now...

Hit the spot...

Perfect! I was craving hot cocoa at 10 pm and only needed one cup. I don't bother buying those instant cocoa packets because I just don't like them... this was just what I needed :)
