"A creamy, chocolatey breakfast treat minus the fat and excessive sugar. Tastes like tiny chocolate teddy bears! If porridge is too thick or oats are uncooked, add more boiling water to it till cooked and desired thickness reached. Serve with a splash of cold milk."

Very tasty and chocolaty. I used a mixture of old fashioned oats, quick-cooking oats, and oat bran, and used half 2 percent and half almond milk. I Also reduced the sugar to about about 3 tables...

I followed the recipe exactly and did not care for it. It was not nearly sweet enough for me. I added some shredded coconut and Splenda, which helped; however, I do not plan to make it again.
