This recipe was okay as is, but I thought it was a lot better with a few changes. I did the recipe as written, but using amaretto flavored creamer, and it was okay but not sweet or chocolatey enough for me, and a bit chalky. I dumped in a bunch more powdered sugar (3/4 to 1 c?), maybe 1/2 c or so more chocolate milk mix, and 1/4 c. more cocoa powder. That made it more flavorful and thick-tasting. The powdery taste was my own fault for not getting the water hot enough on my first taste test. I used much hotter water the second time around and it cut down on the chalky. With the changes I felt much better about giving this as gifts.
The amaretto flavor was a tasty addition, and I think using the wal-mart brand chocolate milk mix made the flavor stronger like another reviewer had mentioned. Overall, it was tasty and worth making. Thanks!
