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 thought this tasted alright. I used the calculate button to change it to 1 serving to try it. I went to cook it in a pot, but it just wasn't enough ingredients for one drink to do so. I used the microwave instead and added the first 4 ingredients, in a large mug, and microwaved for 30 seconds. I then added the milk and flavorings and did an additional 1 minute. I did change it up some to lighten it up a bit. I used 1% milk and a packet of Truvia for the sugar. For the extract I added a drop of peppermint and 2 drops of vanilla extract. I have used extracts, enough, to know a little goes a long way. It can be added but not removed. I am not a big fan of making flavored cocoa from a packet. However, it did sort of taste like a thin mint cookie, although, even much more so with some Andes mints melting in the bottom of the cup.
