This works a whole lot better if you use baking cocoa in place of the cocoa mix. You get more chocolate-y flavor with less sugar. I didn't have whole milk so I used a mix of fat free evaporated milk and fat free half-n-half. My kids and I thought this was great. Next time, I might add a little more peppermint extract.

This was excellent and easy to make...very delicious...I only had the baking cocoa powder and not hot cocoa mix, so that's what I used and it was excellent...have already made it 2 nights in a row.

I prefer using cocoa from the can too for this. Also use your own judgement for the extract 'less is more.'
