I used pure canadian maple syrup in this recipe. Because I am out of honey, I doubled the amount of syrup. I topped this with a dollop of Cool Whip. One of the best hot chocolate recipes I've tried yet. I loved that it wasn't overly sweet and that slight hint of maple. VERY good.

I followed the recipe exactly, just using a small pot and making 1/2 recipe. If you like hot chocolate not sweet at all, you will like this. I honestly, was dissapointed with this as is. However, after I took it off of the burner I let 3 large marshmallows from Allrecipes recipe "Spooky Homemade Marshmallows," melt into it and it was perfect. I topped my cup with some lite whipped topping also. If adding marshmallows or other toppings, the sweetness gets balanced fortunately.

palatable after adding a lot more honey
