"This is a spiced version of hot chocolate that is absolutely fantastic. It can be a little rich, though. As with any recipe, you should try it first. Adjust the spices to your preference. If the drink is a bit rich for your taste you can add a cup of water to cut it down a bit."

If it is a bit too rich, you can cut it down with a small amount of water.

This was our Saturday morning early breakfast treat. I made the recipe exact, warmed it through while wisking, then taste-testing. I didn't think it had enough cocoa powder so I added another th...

Too much spice, not enough chocolate. I only put a pinch of cloves, everything else stayed the same. It was really gritty (filtering is a must) I guess it would be good with some tweaking but th...

I looked repeately at the recipe to see what I did wrong. The only change I made was 1% milk instead of skim. It came out like lightly chocolate flavored water. In an attempt to salvage - I doub...

It has an awful aftertaste, like I just ate a spoonful of powdered spices.

I really liked this hot chocolate, but the spices were a little too strong for me. I would suggest less cloves and more sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla.
