This is an easy and delicious recipe!
I used this recipe for a Hot Chocolate Bar for a gathering of friends and family. I tripled the recipe and after heating it I poured it in the crockpot to keep it warm. Only thing I did different when tripling it was adding 2 cups semisweet and 1 cup dark chocolate chips. Delicious!
This is my hubby and 4 kids favorite hot chocolate! It's so easy I don't even mind making it!
Used Fat Free Half 'n Half and Skim Plus Milk and the Hot Chocolate was excellent.How great would it be with regular half 'n half and milk!!! Definitely one of the best Hot Chocolate Drinks my daughter and I have had.
I made this and my teenage son and his friends loved it. It is like drinking chocolate... very rich and decadent. I cut the recipe in half to make 4 servings.
Love this recipe! So much better than the hot chocolate mixes that has who knows what in it (or even how to pronounce some of the ingredients listed on the packaging). Delicious and wholesome---what more could you want? Susan
